This is the final such conversation and she will be presenting a scenario derived from the previous sessions. The respondent is Stephen Peake, senior lecturer in environmental technologies with the Open University. More info and how to book in advance (it's free) via The Junction website here.

What is the best possible economic structure for responding to climate change? and what would it be like to live in this future system?

Zoe will present a sketch of a future scenario derived from all the previous café conversations and ask Stephen Peake to act as 'respondent' to the scenario and imagine what it might be to live in that world with both intended and unintended consequences.
