Join scientist Elizabeth Hadly for an evening exploring our impact on the planet and what we can do to ensure a bright future for all of Earth’s inhabitants!
Climate change. Refugee crises. Food shortages. What we hear in the news every day seems like a series of unrelated crises, but it is not. Humans have a profound impact on the earth. Our evolutionary course has been shown to produce wonderful results but also unforeseen, harmful consequences for ourselves and those species who share this planet with us.
Are we headed toward a dangerous tipping point? Do we feel it is already too late? What changes can we make, and how do we feel about change? Get your tickets now for a journey into the future of our planet and the ever changing possibilities of Being Human.
About Being Human
Being Human mixes short talks from great minds with fun hands-on experiments, food and drinks, conversation, and storytelling. Each month we’ll explore different aspects of our evolution, our behavior, and the human experience.
Doors open at 6 pm for the Being Human Lounge. Mix and mingle with your fellow humans upstairs in Public Work’s Odd Job Room. Enjoy a different local food vendor and thematic specialty cocktail each month, plus a fully-stocked bar of beer, wine, and delicious cocktails.
The Main Room opens at 7 pm for seating. The talk will begin shortly thereafter.
Seating is limited and available on a first-come first-serve basis. There is plenty of standing room for everyone.
Age Limit: 21+
