Festival of Transition

Low-lying East Anglia is particularly susceptible to the effects of climate change. Latest estimates suggest the global sea level could rise one meter by 2100, but even more important than the actual rise in sea level is the possible increase in frequency or severity of storm surges, which combined with sea level rise could result in frequent, devastating floods throughout the region. Is it still possible to avoid this scenario? By taking immediate and decisive action, can we imagine a different future for East Anglia? If not, what is to become of its culture and its people?

Chaired by Andrew Simms, nef fellow
