Lecture Series: Now for the Long Term

The Michaelmas Term seminar series builds on the report of the Oxford Martin Commission for Future Generations, to be published on 16 October. Chaired by Pascal Lamy, the Commission has brought together  international leaders to address the growing short-term preoccupations of politics and business leaders and to break the current gridlock in dealing with key global problems. Over the past 11 months the Commissioners – leaders from government, business and society - have worked together to forge new approaches for societies to deal with the major challenges of the 21st century, from climate change and the security of food through to economic inequality, energy systems, technology and geopolitics. 

This seminar series will explore the themes and challenges raised in the report and provide an opportunity to debate how progress can be made on the report’s practical recommendations.
