Event Description

I am hosting a group of folks reading and discussing the book, "11" by Paul Hanley, based on the fact that “(e)leven billion people will crowd this marvelous planet by century’s end. If the global economy were to grow five-fold during this period as predicted, humanity’s ecological footprint would exceed Earth’s biocapacity by 400%. We need to chart a new course to the future. The sweeping changes that make a ‘full world’ work—involving dual processes of destruction and reconstruction—will transform global culture, agriculture, and ultimately the human race.” The book is a call to a new consciousness and for an “ethical revolution” that can allow us to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization.
