Nomad Century: Gaia Vince in conversation with Jessica Gaitán Johannesson

November 18, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Gaia Vince’s new book should be read not just by every politician, but by every person on the planet, because it lays out, much more clearly than any existing scientific assessment, the world we are creating through global heating’ – Observer

Book details:

Nomad Century: How to Survive the Climate Upheaval

While the climate catastrophe is finally getting the attention it deserves, the inevitability of mass migration has been largely ignored. While we must do everything we can to mitigate the impact of climate change, the truth is that huge swathes of the world are becoming uninhabitable.

In Nomad Century, Gaia Vince provides an examination of this most pressing issue facing humanity. In conversation with Jessica Gaitán Johannesson, Vince discusses how migration brings benefits not only to migrants themselves, but to host countries, many of which face demographic crises and labour shortages.
