Climate change is a reality, despite decades of warnings from scientists, is it a case of too little too late in terms of international policy? What can we do now to stop the worst consequences?
Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg’s ‘Disarming case to act right now on climate change’ is a passionate call to action, Psychologist Per Espen Stoknes explains ‘How to transform apocalypse fatigue into action on global warming’ and environmentalist Katherine Wilkinson explains ‘ How empowering women and girls can help stop global warming’ and we find out ‘What really happens to the plastic you throw away’

TEDx Hackney Libraries is a wonderful opportunity for local residents to get together to listen to experts talk about subjects that matter to us all. These events aren’t just about listening; the open discussion at each session encourages conversation about how these topics affect our everyday lives, inspire us to see things from a different perspective and could even spark change!
TEDx Hackney Council Libraries are inclusive events, ensuring that everyone has a voice, as we believe that personal stories and experiences are invaluable. We can learn from experts, but most of all we can learn from each other.
