Is Europe Headed Towards Social Breakdown, and How Can We Change it? Future scenario in action
November 29 @ 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm UTC+1
Is Europe headed towards social breakdown and how can we change it? This question is at the core of this interactive workshop with Peter Turchin. Europe is threatened to its core. Extreme wealth is concentrated among a small elite, while the continent is grappling with environmental and economic disparities. Climate-related conflicts and disasters unfold, leading to societal upheaval. Civil unrest is common and increasingly violent across Europe. The elites are divided, each protecting their vested interests. Civil society organisations operate in a polarised environment, working to bridge social and economic gaps and promote climate resilience. Something profound needs to change now to prevent this scenario from arising or at least to mitigate the worst impacts of it and prepare for adapting to life in this scenario. What can philanthropy do? What can you do in your role to help that?
