Craig Bennett, Friends of the Earth
Talk by Craig Bennett, Friends of the Earth, Chaired by Prof Geraint Ellis of QUB.
“You can’t stop progress” is the lazy heckle sometimes directed at environmentalists. But what is ‘progress’? As a species, how are we really doing and where should we be going next? In this talk, Craig Bennett will look at the evolution of the concept of ‘progress’. What does it mean, what should it mean, and what should ‘progress’ really look like this century? Might modern positive environmentalism represent real progress? In which case, who are the real enemies of progress? And critically what role do we have as citizens?
