Level 3, Number 5, The Crescent, Invercargill, Southland, 9810, New Zealand · Cost: 0
Jun 12, 2013

Bill McKibben is currently touring New Zealand with a climate change maths lesson that might just change the world. It’s simple maths: we can burn less than 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming — anything more than that risks catastrophe for life on earth. The only problem? Fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they’re planning to burn it all — unless we do the maths to change our future. You can find more information about his tour here: http://350.org.nz/our-projects/bill-mckibben-do-the-maths We are filming the Dunedin talk and will be screening it on the Thursday.

The venue is accessed from The Crescent, in the town center, from the entrance to the right of Little India, which is the same entrance that leads to the Southland Express office. Go up the stairs to Level 3, it'll be well signposted. Disabled access is possible - take the elevator to Level 2 and we can arrange people to help get your wheelchair up the last flight of stairs.
