Insects vs Humans

Thursday 16 May 2013, 19.00-20.30


Pitting insects against humans, leading scientists and thinkers debate ‘Who is more of a pest?’ We debate the effect of insects and humans on planetary and human health and see who fares best in the outcome. Are insects really our enemy or are we destroying ourselves? Is there a way we can live in harmony with the critters that works out well for everyone?
