We Shall Overcome

  • Saturday, 20th Nov
  • 10:30 am - 11:15 am IST

Frightening pandemics, terrible inequality, racism and poverty, rising political authoritarianism, the inescapable climate crisis, and the resuscitated danger of nuclear war. Each of these crises seems so much larger than any one of us can understand or handle. Yet today, they all seem to be going critical simultaneously. In Commanding Hope, Thomas Homer-Dixon shows how we got here and our power to renew our imperiled world.
