Feeding the world, climate change, biodiversity, antibiotics, plastics, inequality, fake news – the list of concerns for the Anthropocene seems endless. But how does it all fit together, and what should we do? And, given the global nature of the challenges we now face, what on Earth can any of us do? 

There is No Planet B maps it out in an accessible and entertaining way, filled with astonishing facts and analysis. You’ll find big-picture perspective on the environmental and economic challenges of the day laid out in one place and traced through to the underlying roots – questions of how we live and think. You’ll find practical and even inspiring ideas for what you can actually do to help humanity thrive on this – our only – planet.

Please join us on Wednesday 6th March at 4pm: Mike will give a seminar on his new book, followed by a discussion & Q&A session over nibbles and drinks. All welcome!
