Join David Whyte as he considers the link between corporations and the existential threat of climate change, illustrated in his new book.

We have reached the point of no return. The existential threat of climate change is now a reality. The world has never been more vulnerable. In Ecocide, a new, hard-hitting book, author David Whyte makes clear the problem won’t be solved by tinkering around the edges, instead it maps out a plan to end the corporation’s death-watch over us.

In collaboration with Manchester University Press.


We endeavour to ensure that Festival events are accessible to all and welcome you to contact us regarding any specific requirements you may have before the event: or 0161 306 1982.
