Climate Change and Humanity, November 2004

Why the Crisis Forum?

We believe that humankind is in serious trouble due to an economic and political system which is destroying our ability to sustain our existence. Our aims are:

  • to bring together committed people from diverse college-based, academic disciplines, as well as independent researchers, to analyse the nature of the crisis in a genuinely holistic way;
  • to put that knowledge to positive use so that ordinary people can apply global knowledge to local contexts;
  • to develop this initiative as an independent research-based ‘centre’ through projects, publications and study programmes. more »
