This major two-day event, co-hosted with the University of California (Merced), gathers experts, activists and theatre practitioners in a vital exploration of the relationships between Shakespeare’s works and the current climate crisis.

As human-made climate change threatens to dissolve the ‘great globe itself’, how can we use Shakespeare to address the most urgent environmental questions of our time?

Co-organised by Katie Brokaw, Paul Prescott and the Research department at Shakespeare’s Globe, this two-day event will span a range of pressing topics that will be at the forefront of our minds as we begin the process of post-Covid recovery. Scholars will explore ecological collapse and renewal in Shakespeare’s texts; environmental experts will map out ways in which Shakespearean theatres and festivals can achieve sustainable and ethical futures; theatre professionals will reflect on the capacity of live theatre to change audience perception and behaviour.

Keynote speakers:

  • Randall Martin – Activating Environmental Consciousness through Shakespeare
  • Solitaire Townsend
  • Madeline Sayet – A World in Relation
