The Old Vic today announces details for How to Save the World in its Lungs Voices Off series. A panel discussion about climate change in association with Mishcon de Reya and WWF, tickets go on general sale on Fri 13 Sep.
How much difference can one person make? Is recycling your plastic helping or will it never be enough? Why isn’t the government doing more and whose responsibility is it?
For this Voices Off panel debate, our speakers will be discussing how you can take action and demand change – and what they think it’s going to take to save the world.
Get the chance to join in and ask difficult questions about a topic that impacts on every single one of us.
Panelists to be announced.
Voices Off explores the themes raised by our main stage productions in our series of talks, debates and Q&As with leading voices in the arts, media, science and politics.
