For many, the climate crisis = despair. But where exactly are we? On the big picture - on policy, government action and international accord? And what can each and every one of us in our daily lives do to truly make a difference?
Bella Lack, 18 year-old climate activist, TEDX talker and colleague of Jane Goodall, as they get to grips with all this and more.
No one could have predicted all the many ways in which the pandemic has affected science, people and the planet. It’s been embroiled in economics, international power play, fake news and climate change. It’s taken us on a long journey, but where’s next?
Joining this panel is eminent science communicator and physicist, Prof. Jim Al-Khalili, Prof. Sarah Gilbert and Dr. Catherine Green, the women behind the Oxford Vaccine. Hosted by journalist and author, James Ball.
From one of the biggest brains on the planet comes a conversation about the universe: about the life lessons it can teach us; and about balance and order.
Attendees of this session will receive a copy of Universal by Professor Brian Cox.

Life Lessons has changed the way I’m going to do my events. I’ve been to so many talks here and they’re fantastic. I’m so grateful. I’d love to do more work with you
I had a wonderful time at Life Lessons – even better than I expected, and I was expecting a lot. All the visitors I spoke to told me they'd had a fantastic day.
Life Lessons is a great idea. It feels like there’s not enough of it. I would like to think that this is the start of a sea-change I guess. In that it’s something going forward that people realise needs to be part of our everyday thinking.
