As we progress into the 21st century, people have become a little bolder and braver in talking about what was once a taboo subject. Death has come out of the closet and people are now wanting to confront the subject from all possible angles. No longer shy or diffident, there is a desire and need to talk about a host of issues that surround what has been described as the extreme event in life.

This discussion group caters for those who wish to explore the question of death with a range of prepared topics each week for open forum discussion. Come with your own questions and experiences and opinions on matters that touch the heart of the human condition.

Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.

Interested in a social history of infectious diseases? The newest course in our Junior Lecturer series, which gives young people an opportunity to share their passions, experience and knowledge, is entitled “From Plague to Protest: A Social History of Disease.”

This four-session course offers an accessible overview of disease from both biological and social perspectives. We will begin with discovering how the body defends itself against invaders, and then pivot to examining the invaders themselves. Armed with this knowledge, we will be able to explore how diseases have played out in society, from the Middle Ages through to the present day. Along the way, we will examine some fascinating case studies and the individuals who have played pivotal roles in either furthering our understanding in the battle of organisms or in stymying public health efforts.

For more info on this and our other courses in world art & architecture, environment and biodiversity, history, language (Arabic, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, Swahili, Tamil, Thai and Urdu), world literature, philosophy, and world cinema, visit our website at <earthdiverse.org.nz>.

We specialise in hybrid courses with both an in-person and distance learning component via Zoom, so no matter where you live in the world you can take one of our courses!
