Overcoming the Crisis of Civilization: Five Revolutions

Last November I did a talk at a seminar hosted by The Crisis Forum, at St Ethelburga's Centre for Peace and Reconciliation (Climate Change and Violence Workshop 7: Avoiding climate change violence: What is to be done?

I spoke not just about the latest state of the evidence on environmental and energy crises, along with their inherent interrelationships with food and economic crises; I also addressed the increasing problem of state militarisation as an inevitable outcome of the current, failed business-as-usual approach to dealing with these crises.

In the latter part of the talk, I spoke about the five tentative "revolutions" or "transformations" which are taking place in disparate parts of the world, albeit only in embryonic form, and the immense potential they hold for an alternative, sustainable civilizational paradigm. 

The talk was filmed, and recently put up on video. You can watch it here:
