Climate change / all change on the new frontiers
With the peri-urban as a new frontier between natural and human systems, with areas doubling in 25 years, adaptation to fire & flood calls for transformation pathways, far beyond the normal scope of policy / research.
The current geo-political conflict / instability is a further ‘threat multiplier’ for both mitigation & adaptation – see Climate-wise – new world disorder
Can we build the ‘collective eco-urban intelligence’ needed for these ‘transformative adaptive pathways’? This round table introduces the Peri-cene (peri-eco-urban anthropocene) and follows up the COP26 ‘reality testing’ program – www.manchester.ac.uk/synergistics/climate-wise/ . Then we can begin to explore ways to turn crisis into opportunity.
Due to program changes we need to reschedule this and split into 2 parts –
- Foresight-wise theme – methods & tools them will be in a hybrid workshop at the Planetary Futures of Health and Wellbeing conference – Turku, Finland, June 15-17th (date tbc)
- Peri-urban & climate adaptation theme – we are aiming for a July launch, date coming shortly
We will keep you posted with details as emerging, and hope you can continue with us on this unique exploration at the frontiers….
