What if…the sea keeps rising? - 13 June

The nationwide ‘Festival of Transition’, coordinated by nef (the new economics foundation) and the Transition Network, has begun, running until 20th June, the first day of the 20th UN Earth Summit in Rio.

From now until June, museums, galleries and public spaces across the country will be hosting debates, talks and workshops asking the question: What if…? Find an event that appeals to you, go along, and get inspired to conduct your own 24 hour experiment on 20th June 2012.

Low-lying East Anglia is particularly susceptible to the effects of climate change. Latest estimates suggest the global sea level could rise one meter by 2100, but even more important than the actual rise in sea level is the possible increase in frequency or severity of storm surges, which combined with sea level rise could result in frequent, devastating floods throughout the region. Is it still possible to avoid this scenario? By taking immediate and decisive action, can we imagine a different future for East Anglia? If not, what is to become of its culture and its people?

Museum of East Anglian Life, Wednesday, 13 June 2012 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm
