OverviewClimate chaos, IPCC and COP26 – a staged play gives ironic views of civil engineering education, “sustainability”, denial and the generations.
What could go wrong with this event from Northern Region? It starts with a 20minute play written by a civil engineer, played by civil engineers, about a “sustainability” university engineering lecture, in front of a live virtual audience of mostly civil engineers playing the role of restive students (you), who start to realise that things need to change.
Unfortunately, when it comes to global warming nothing is straightforward, particularly in 2021, the year of fires, flood and heat, just a few weeks before the planet’s fate is sealed at COP26.
The play will be followed by a chance to discuss and vote on issues raised by the play and the associated new novel “Greenhush” (http://www.greenhush.org.uk).
This event is open to all who might be affected by the climate, inside or outside engineering.
This will be broadcast online and recorded.
