OLLI Workshop | Living on Earth as if We Want to Stay

Fall 2021 Workshop, "Living on Earth as if We Want to Stay." This workshop will be held Saturday, September 18, 2021, from 9:30 - 11:30 a.m.

Workshop Description

With human activity pressing against planetary limits, perpetual growth is no longer an appropriate goal. This changing relationship with the Earth requires a different approach to mutual provision (the economy). Time-tested biological processes can secure long-term well-being as society’s economic “metabolism” adapts to our new situation. A glimpse of a future the grandchildren might enjoy can be seen through the precept “More Fun, Less Stuff.”
