In this fireside chat – which starts with a hopeful scenario for the future – you’ll hear stories from a global community of researchers on a mission to bring together the diverse knowledge, skills and experience needed to avoid catastrophe and reach this better future.

The Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) is home to academics aiming to mitigate global catastrophic risk, but the Centre is only a small part of a growing global community concerned with avoiding the very worst of future scenarios for humanity.

We will be joined by Cecil Abungu, Coordinator of the ILINA Program, and Nandini Shiralkar, Executive Director at the Existential Risk Alliance (ERA). The event will be chaired by Haydn Belfield, the Academic Project Manager at CSER.

The ILINA Program is a fellowship dedicated to providing an outstanding platform for Africans to learn and work on questions around maximising wellbeing today, preventing and mitigating global catastrophic risks, and ensuring that the long-term future goes well.

Nandini Shiralkar, Executive Director at the Existential Risk Alliance (ERA)

The Existential Risk Alliance is a non-profit project working to mitigate existential risk by equipping early-career researchers and entrepreneurs with the skills and the knowledge necessary to tackle existential risks via their Summer Research Fellowship programme.
