Sustainability Isn’t Funny with Mike Shaver


Audience AdultsSuitable for allUniversity students/staff

Sustainability isn’t funny.

It’s messy and complex and interconnected and hard. This is especially true when we consider how all the different sustainability challenges we face affect one another: plastics and energy, water and food, net-zero and social justice… Argh, see?! Not even remotely funny.

But if we try to make it funny – if we take the mickey out of our future – can we then peek in at some genuine opportunities for change?

Join Professor Mike Shaver, Director of Sustainable Futures at The University of Manchester and Director of the Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub, on a (hopefully) funny and (definitely) entertaining journey to test our presumptions about climate change, eco-friendly practices and living sustainably.
