  • This event has passed.

SYMBIOTIC EARTH explores the life and ideas of scientific rebel Lynn Margulis, who challenged entrenched theories of male-dominated science.

As a young scientist in the 1960s, Margulis was ridiculed when she first proposed that symbiosis – when organisms live and work together — was a key driver of evolution, but she persisted.

Through numerous collaborations she caused a seismic shift in our understanding of life. Margulis’ symbiotic narrative presents an alternative to the destructive worldview that has led to climate change and extreme capitalism.

With James Lovelock she developed the Gaia Theory that all life is interconnected and interdependent. Her vision offers bold insights into health, society, and nature, and inspires creative approaches to our pressing environmental and social crises.
