Battle of Ideas Satellite Debate - Science & Society: Brave New World or Geek Chic?

Tuesday 1st October 2013 6:30pm - 7:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Chargeable Event

While society approaches something close to a consensus on issues like GM foods and nuclear power, elsewhere scientific debate is far more fractious, with communities divided by local wind farms, public figures at loggerheads over climate change, and headlines screaming about controversial fertility practices such as 'three-parent babies'. What is certain, however, is that science is now more than ever at the heart of public debate and consciousness, a shift reflected in mainstream popular culture by shows like The Big Bang Theory, and the mass popularity of rockstar scientist Professor Brian Cox. In this 'round-table rumble' brought to you by the Battle of Ideas, scientists and commentators discuss the changing attitudes to scientific attitudes, asking whether we're at the dawn of a golden age of public enlightenment, or whether engagement with science is no more than a fleeting fad.

Tickets: £7.50 / £5 via www.battleofideas.org.ukor call 020 7269 9220

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles
