In this episode of World, We’ve Got This (season 3, episode 7, aired  January 28th, 2022), Sara Dahlen, a PhD candidate in Bioethics & Society and Dr Silvia Camporesi, Reader in Bioethics and Health Humanities, discuss an imagined future in which “there will be no humans as we know them”, humanity’s relationship with nature and technology, and explore some of the bioethical questions facing us today.

Sara’s essay, “Notes to No-One”, won the 2021 King’s Biotechnology & Society Essay Contest and imagines a future after an ecological collapse where humanity has almost been destroyed by climate change, wildfires and endocrine disruptions.
