The way of life we have adopted in the West is not sustainable. Climate scientists point to the irreversible consequences of the number of cars, eating meat and emissions from large corporations. During Apocalypsophy, Lisa Doeland talks about why we just can’t seem to accept that the world as we know it is doomed. Why do we pin our hopes on new technologies while not adapting our lifestyles? How can we stay hopeful in the middle of our downfall?

Drs. Lisa Doeland is a PhD candidate at Radboud University and teaches at Erasmus University College (EUC). Among other things, she wrote the book Apocalypsofie. Over recycling, groene groei en andere gevaarlijke fantasieën (Apocalypsophy. On Recycling, Green Growth and Other Dangerous Fantasies). Her research and mission are to face what we would rather not face.
