Learn Something New

Tues, 3rd October – 7:30pm –  Radicals with Jamie Bartlett – The Canalhouse

We’ve been to a few Nottingham Skpetics in the Pub events and they always turn out to have entertaining speakers with fascinating topics.

This week, Jamie Bartlett we be taking us inside the strange and exciting worlds of the innovators, disruptors, idealists and extremists who think society is broken, and believe they know how to fix it.

From dawn raids into open mines to the darkest recesses of the internet, Radicals introduces us to some of the most interesting and important movements today: the US Transhumanist Party, far-right groups seeking to close the borders, militant environmentalists striving to save the planet’s natural reserves by any means possible and psychedelic pioneers attempting to heal society with the help of powerful hallucinogens.

Economics made fun – with Vikings

Weds, 4th October 7pm – Viking Economics. How the Scandinavians got it right – Friends Meeting House

George Lakey will be exploring the inner workings of the Nordic economies that boast the world’s happiest, most productive workers, and explains how, if we can enact some of the changes the Scandinavians fought for surprisingly recently, we, too, can embrace equality in our economic policy.
