Future histories - technology isn't neutral

Sunday, 8 September 2019 - 11:00am to 11:30am

Can we simply innovate our way out of the present climate crisis? Or do technological fixes hide another problem - that of a deeply unequal and unjust world? Until we start to understand that climate change is a also political problem we may end up carrying the problems of the present into a clean energy future.

Lawyer and writer Lizzie O'Shea argues that if we are going to have a just and democratic world we need to wrestle the future of technology away from the billionaires and tech-bros and put it into the hands of the people.
