Lecture led by George Monbiot, writer and columnist, as part of Newcastle University's Insights Public Lecture Series

A toxic ideology rules the world – of extreme competition and individualism. It misrepresents human nature, destroying hope and common purpose. Only a positive vision can replace it, a new story that re-engages people in politics and lights a path to a better world.

 

Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. Our aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate. 

Many of our speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. Our lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
