‘Have no doubt, we are facing a species emergency – but we can manage it. We can survive, but to do so will require a planned and deliberate migration of a kind humanity has never before undertaken.’ In her latest book, Nomad Century: How to Survive the Climate Upheaval, Gaia Vince promotes the idea of planned and extensive migration as key to surviving the climate crisis. A brilliant speaker, Gaia will discuss how the relocation of hundreds of millions of people will allow us to adapt habitats and create global economic security.
