Solving Humanity's Greatest Risks

For all who want humanity to have a future - a one-hour, global online conference to discusss the big issues

Join us for the first event in RSA ANZ's online series, as we explore the existential risks that threaten humanity and how we create a sustainable future.

Collapse of civilization 'a near certainty'

A shattering collapse of civilisation is a “near certainty” in the next few decades due to humanity’s continuing destruction of the natural world that sustains all life on Earth, according to biologist Prof Paul Ehrlich.

A false picture of human progress

Global politics is based on an outmoded and increasingly destructive model of human progress and development. Can science change a dire situation?

Denial of reality

The greatest challenge to human survival may lie, not just in the physical threats we face, but in our own minds.
