Venue: Braziers Park, Ipsden, Nr. Wallingford, S OXON OX10 6AN

Organiser: Braziers Park

Braziers Park houses the UK's longest running secular community and is itself a experiment in living differently. This day is part of Braziers Park's iu (integrative university) programme, which is an on-going research project around aspects of transformative learning.

An experimental day looking at aspects of game theory in parallel with discussions around the replacement of the Trident nuclear deterrent. Clearly the efficacy or otherwise of the MAD idea and the emotional response to using nuclear weapons will be part of our discussion, but the main thrust of our experimentation will be looking out how our learned game playing ‘instincts’ impact on the psychology of our responses around Trident and how that might, in turn, effect a persuasive approach to disarmament.
