Dragon Hall Debates

Should We Let Nature Takes Its Course?

This is an event from the 2018 edition

With sea levels on the rise and tidal erosion escalating, the fragility of being an island nation has never been more apparent, particularly to Norfolk’s vulnerable coasts and the people who call them home. Happisburgh coastal campaigner Malcolm Kerby and Patrick Barkham, author of Coastlines: The Story of our Shore, join our Dragon Hall Debates panel to discuss and debate. Should we take action, or let nature take its course?

The free Dragon Hall Debates series, presented jointly by the University of East Anglia and the National Centre for Writing, tackles a range of topical, scientific, cultural and political issues, drawing on the expertise of UEA academics as well as guest thinkers, writers and commentators. Come along and hear from the panel, then join the conversation and have your say.
