AN environmental group is hosting a talk on the planet’s future this weekend.

The Chelmsford branch of eco-conscious campaign Extinction Rebellion will give a seminar called Heading to Extinction and What to do About it.

The free event will be held at West Maldon Community Centre in Sunbury Way this Saturday at 2pm.

A spokesman said: “The planet is in ecological crisis. We are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction event this planet has experienced.

“Scientists believe we have entered a period of abrupt climate breakdown.

“This is an unprecedented global emergency.

“We will share the latest climate science on where our planet is heading, discuss some of the current psychology around climate change and offer solutions through the study of social movements.

“Everyone is welcome and there will be plenty of time to ask questions and discuss afterwards.”

Another talk will be held at Champions Manor Hall in South Woodham Ferrers next Tuesday at 2pm
