Long-termism: How to Think in Deep Time

BBC Future

From climate change to politics, short-termism is at the root of many of the challenges we face in the 21st Century. How do we employ a deeper-time perspective, and prioritise the well-being of future generations? Author and BBC presenter Linda Geddes speaks to a panel from the worlds of science, governance and philosophy: Martin Rees, Sophie Howe and Roman Krznaric. Part of BBC Future’s Deep Civilisation season, which aims to stand back from the daily news cycle and widen the lens of our current place in time.
