Friday 9th December, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Navigation

The Age of Stupid was an award-winning film made in 2009. Set in 2055, in a world ravaged by catastrophic climate change, an archivist (Pete Postlethwaite) reviews archival footage back “when we could have saved ourselves”, trying to discern where it all went wrong. Seven years on from the film’s release, do we still need to ask if we are living in ‘the age of stupid?’
Join Age of Stupid producer Lizzie Gillet, Guardian’s environment editor John Vidal, Chief Executive of London Cycling Campaign Ashok Sinhaand The Grantham Institute for Climate Change’s Professor Joanna Haigh, to review  clips from the original film and explore the question – Are we still in the Age of Stupid?
