Litfest, Lancaster’s Literature Festival, and Lancaster University are delighted to announce that the author, journalist and environmental campaigner George Monbiot will give the 2023 Lancaster Environment Lecture in the Margaret Fell Lecture Theatre on Wednesday 24 May at 7.00pm.

George Monbiot’s thoroughly researched and compelling books and articles raise questions that need answering and, together with his videos, including Natural Climate Solutions for the Climate Crisis (with Greta Thunberg), have inspired campaigners throughout the world.


The title of his wide-ranging talk will be ‘Feeding the World without Devouring the Planet’. It will be introduced by Professor Andrew Schofield, Vice-Chancellor of Lancaster University, who said:


‘Lancaster University is delighted to strengthen its partnership with Litfest in organising this year’s Lancaster Environment Lecture, and to welcome such a prestigious guest as George Monbiot on campus. The aim of the Lancaster Environment Lecture series is to provide a research-informed platform for discussion on the most pressing issues around climate change and the environment.’


All in-person tickets for this free event have been reserved and there is already a waiting list, but happily, like all Litfest events, it will be livestreamed and available for 30 days starting Monday 29 May:


In addition, a programme of on-campus, themed events, open to the public – ‘Regenesis, a Festival of Regeneration and Renewal’ – has been arranged for the day of the Lecture. This will include talks, food tastings, and yoga and is bookable through Eventbrite:
