Issues Facing Our World
In times of uncertainty, knowledge can help us understand what’s going on around us. City Lit’s range of History, Politics and Science courses explore a number of contemporary issues facing the world right now. A few of the questions we’re currently asking are:
- Can history help us navigate modern issues and crises?
- Could former US President Donald Trump make a comeback?
- How can we safeguard democracies around the world including our own?
- What are the origins of the ongoing middle eastern crises?
- Why do politicians need trust, and how do they get it?
- How do we deal with the histories of empire?
- Are there other ways of organising our economy?
- What is the impact of climate change on our lives?
Taught by experts in their field, our courses give you the opportunity to explore current affairs, historical issues, and global challenges. Join us as we discuss, debate, and dissect the answers.
