Zoe Xirocostas, a third-year PhD candidate in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences at UNSW Science, considers what we should know in this final video from a series from the UNSW Centre for Ideas in which UNSW academics and researchers challenge us to think about how we might not just survive, but thrive in this century of uncertainty.
