About

Does the future plight of the planet keep you up at night? Are you filled with a sense of doom regarding your future or the uncertain future of your children? You’re not alone. Young people are particularly susceptible to this mental anguish and Greta Thunberg was one of the first of her generation to speak publicly of her eco-depression.

While COP26 Climate Conference in Glasgow continues, we’ll discuss both the pessimism and hope attached to the outcome of this event. Canadian journalist Arno Kopecky, author of The Environmentalist’s Dilemma, asks if hope is naïve or indispensable. Professor Theresa Marteau, Director of the Behavior and Health Research Unit at the University of Cambridge, examines what is necessary in terms of our individual and collective behavior that will make change possible.

Cambridge Forum provides free and open discussions about the pertinent issues and ideas confronting us, in the world today.
