Gaia Vince’s Nomad Century describes how climate change and global warming will force massive migrations of people to northern latitudes. Packed with a sobering array of facts, the book nonetheless offers a proactive positive perspective on these demographic disruptions. They could be used to address multiple impending social challenges, from workforce distribution to food production to lifestyle sustainability. This class will provide an opportunity for participants to share their views on these potential scenarios.
