For years, Dougald Hine’s work has involved talking to people about climate change: scientists and policymakers, artists, activists, Indigenous thinkers and religious leaders. In At Work in the Ruins, he asks whether it is time to stop talking about climate change. A reckoning with the strange years we have been living through and our long history of asking too much of science, and the different things we can be talking about when we talk about ‘taking climate change seriously’, the book is also about how we find our bearings and what kind of tasks are worth giving our lives to, given all we know or have good grounds to fear about the trouble the world is in.

I Want a Better Catastrophe sends Andrew Boyd, a lifelong activist, on a quest to learn how to live with the impossible news of our climate doom. With gallows humour and a broken heart, he steers readers through climate angst on a journey from storm-battered coastlines to pipeline blockades and hopelessness workshops, searching out eight climate thinkers – including activist Tim DeChristopher, collapse-psychologist Jamey Hecht, grassroots strategist adrienne maree brown and Indigenous botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer – to ask them: is it really the end of the world, and if so, now what?

Hosted by Charlotte Du Cann and Nick Hunt, the event will feature a wide-ranging discussion about Hine and Boyd’s books, plus a Q&A.
