Listen to Recording THE FUTURE THAT AWAITS US with Kim Stanley Robinson


A conversation with acclaimed science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson, marking the forthcoming publication of his new book The Ministry for the Future (Orbit, 2020) and the launch of Communities for Future. Amid the anxiety of Covid, we risk losing sight of the greater challenges of climate change and biodiversity loss that require a radical transformation of the ways we organise our societies and live our lives.

World-renowned science fiction Kim Stanley Robinson in his forthcoming book The Ministry for the Future examines how the world will look in a decade or so – searing and deadly heatwaves, species extinction, novel technologies, global ecoterrorism, all framed by the intense struggles to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement. Irish woman, Mary Murphy, who leads the Ministry for the Future, is a central figure in seeking ambitious ways forward. The conversation touches on these themes and others, to discuss what kind of future awaits us.Join us in the second episode of our Deep Listening Series with a conversation with Kim Stanley Robinson.
