On 19 and 20 March, Tate and the Royal Society collaborate to bring you a screening of the film The Age of Stupid followed by a discussion and a public symposium about the social and psychological impacts of climate change.

How do notions of adaptation, mitigation, and geo-engineering expand when artists and scientists listen to each other's ideas? This science-art public forum uses the imagination to engage with the future of our planet.

The event begins on Friday 19 March with a screening of drama-documentary, The Age of Stupid, which will be followed by a discussion. 6.30pm - 8.45pm, £5 (£4 conc).

The symposium programme begins at 10:30 on Saturday 20 March and continues until 5pm. It will include presentations, panel discussions and a public forum following a series of break out sessions where audience members will have the opportunity to formulate proposition and questions for the speakers with the help of a group of facilitators.

Speakers for the symposium include: Professor Brian Hoskins, Lucy Orta, Robert Bloomfield, Tomas Saraceno, Professor Steve Rayner, Agnes Denes and Professor Corinne Le Quere.
