George Monboit and George Marshall: How to Break The Silence on Environmental Collapse

A discussion between two passionate and knowledgeable climate communicators, with a chance for the audience to join the conversation.

George Monbiot is an author, Guardian columnist and environmental campaigner. His best-selling books include Feral: Rewilding the Land, Sea and Human Life and Heat: How to Stop the Planet Burning. His latest is Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics for An Age of Crisis. George co-wrote the concept album Breaking the Spell of Loneliness with musician Ewan McLennan. His TED talk, How Wolves Change Rivers, has been viewed over 40m times.

George Marshall has 30 years’ experience at all levels of communications and advocacy – from community level protest movements, to senior positions in Greenpeace and the Rainforest Foundation, to advisory roles for governments, businesses and international agencies. He is an award-winning documentary maker and writes regularly on climate change issues, including articles for The Guardian, The New Statesman, New Scientist and The Ecologist. George has written two books: Carbon Detox, which addresses personal behaviour, and Don’t Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change, written for a general public audience on the psychology of climate change.

This event is part of the ‘Our Planet’ strand, which Sheffield Climate Alliance is co-sponsoring alongside Regather and is set to be a highly thought-provoking evening. We recommend all volunteers for Sheffield Climate Alliance and Climate Communications Hub attend to assist them in their thinking of how we reach out to more people. Taking place on Thursday 16th May, 7pm at Sheffield Union Auditorium, Western Bank, Sheffield. To find out more and book tickets, click on the ‘Tickets for Good’ link here
