‘Present Dangers, Future Risks’: a panel discussion in Madrid

The risk to global civilisation is as high today as it has ever been in the face of threats of nuclear weapons and climate change, a group of leading scientists announced recently.

Other analysts have also pointed to other dangers such as pandemics, cyber-attacks, and socio-economic and political disintegration. But is there room for optimism?

The British Spanish Society (BSS) and IE Business School are hosting a panel discussion in English in Madrid on 29 May entitled ‘Present Dangers, Future Risks‘, to address the clicking Doomsday Clock from different angles and perspectives.
