Say your prayers that you will never need this talk. A viral pandemic has wiped-out the vast majority of humanity and few survivors remain. What would they need to know to rebuild our modern world? How are fundamental substances made, and how does basic technology work? Dr Lewis Dartnell will provide the toolkit for rebooting civilisation from scratch and relearning human knowledge. From finding supplies and shelter in the immediate aftermath, Dr Dartnell will consider how to re-start agriculture, create electricity, develop medicines, set up communications networks and construct transport systems. This singular event will be a journey of discovery, in which we learn how the life-support system of advanced civilisation really works.

 

All attendees will receive a copy of the book.
