One of the world’s most influential public intellectuals, Peter Singer joins How To Academy to reflect on the future of humans and animals in the aftermath of the global pandemic.
The future of our planet depends on humanity’s relationship to other animals. From mitigating the worst effects of climate change to preventing another global pandemic, we need to urgently address animal rights and embrace a more plant based, environmentally conscious future if we are to survive and thrive as a species.
Live from Melbourne, philosopher and father of the animal rights movement Peter Singer will share his thoughts on the ongoing crisis and envision a better future. In 1975, his book Animal Liberation proved that a work of philosophy could profoundly change the way the world thinks; forty years later, The Most Good You Can Do inspired another, hugely influential movement, the Effective Altruists, whose determination to alleviate extreme poverty has shown, once again, the power of ideas to challenge even the most pessimistic status quo.
Don’t miss this chance to hear the reflections of the world’s preeminent moral philosopher on the world of 2020 and beyond.
This event takes place at noon British Summer Time.
