Drawing on personal experiences of living with the Maasai tribe in east Africa and the Inuit of Greenland whose cultures and resilience derive from living in constantly changing environments - Jacqueline McGlade explores how mind-sets, economies and ecosystems can become (re)active and more resilient to an increasingly uncertain world. McGlade has pioneered research in the dynamics of ecosystems, citizen science and social and environmental informatics. Recorded on 04/09/2018.

Earth's changing climate provides a natural laboratory for examining how organisms evolve adaptations to environmental extremes. As climate change accelerates, an obvious question arises: can evolution keep up with rapid change or are most species likely to go extinct as temperatures rise? Join Scripps Oceanography biologist Ron Burton as he describes the cutting-edge genetic tools he uses to understand how populations of tidepool animals cope with rapid temperature changes and how evolution has shaped those responses across the geographic range of each species. Recorded on 10/08/2018.

This symposium addresses the interactive gene-culture co-evolution of the human brain with tool use and technology - ranging from simple stone tools millions of years ago to computers today. Recorded on 10/12/2018.
