Facing the Future: a presentation by Nicole Foss
Thursday, October 10, 2013 - 7:00pm

Join Nicole Foss, editor of the website http://theautomaticearth.org, to discuss the financial and environmental state of the world, and how we as individuals and communities can address the problems of those areas.

We are approaching many limits to growth over the next several decades, and are consequently facing many challenges in our immediate future. Finance, energy, environment, resources and climate will all impact on the single-minded, one-dimensional trajectory human society has been taking in our era of growth imperative. Our current path is unsustainable. It cannot and will not continue, so we must adapt our societies in order to build a new future.

Nicole will paint a comprehensive picture of where we stand today globally, how our human operating system functions, how and why it is acutely vulnerable, and what we must do about the predicament in which we find ourselves. 

When: Thursday, October 10, 7 p.m.

Where: TaborSpace dining room, 5441 SE Belmont (corner of SE 55th & Belmont)
