Saturday Session, Online Saturday 16 May
The Saturday Sessions provide our alumni a way to extend their professional development and ‘top-up’ their Cranlana experience. The Saturday Sessions discuss different topical issues and explore ethical themes such as power, fairness, justice, trust and short- vs long-term thinking. Using the Cranlana method, these truly fascinating conversations about the things that matter are based on a selection of provided readings and are guided by our expert Moderators. These intimate sessions of philosophical and ethical discussion will refuel your sense of moral courage, re-connect you to your critical reasoning capabilities and provide a forum to re-engage with the extraordinary Cranlana alumni.
The topic for this Session is The other emergency: the ethical challenge of climate change
With aeroplanes grounded, factories closed and countless people staying at home, the Covid-19 pandemic may have (inadvertently) slowed greenhouse gas emissions. But what happens when the global economy gears up again? Will we return to our high-consumption, high-carbon lifestyles? Or does the virus-induced downturn present an opportunity to do things differently?
This Cranlana alumni conversation will use some recent writings on climate change as a prompt for discussion. What can each of us do, as leaders in our own fields, to meet the ethical challenge of climate change?
