To celebrate the opening of the Extinction exhibition on 8th Feb, the Natural History Museum have organised a talk about whether or not the human race can go extinct:
"The end of the human species has been discussed in science and popular culture through a great number of scenarios: population decline, evolution, environmental collapse and rapid advances in technology, to name a few. But are we really at risk?
Join this highly topical debate at the first in our evening discussion events to mark the Extinction exhibition opening on 8 February.
At the event our speakers will be asking these questions and more:
- If we are at risk, is this from a single or combination of events?
- What are the chances the human race could determine its own fate?
- How many threats are we preparing for and are these necessarily the most likely to occur?
Join us to talk about our success as a species and how this has increased the threats we face."
Booking is required and tickets are £12 each (£10 for members).
Doors are at 6.30pm and the talk starts at 7pm
