Scientists and Extinction Rebellion speakers Dr Kate Jeffery (UCL) and Emily Spry (London School Hygiene and Tropical medicine) will a talk organised by local community group Extinction Rebellion Dacorum.

The planet is in ecological crisis: we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced. Scientists believe we may have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown. This is an emergency.

In this public talk, climate speakers from Extinction Rebellion will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change, and offer solutions through the study of social movements.

This event is expected to be very popular,  so you are requested to contact Extinction Rebellion on their local Dacorum Facebook page, or email organiser Sue Hampton if you would like to come.
