Sustainability Week: Radical Activism & Systems Change

Thursday, October 3, 2019 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM


The registration period has closed for this event.

 

Why, why, why...


Details

Why do we accept responsibility for personal change when it is the industrial economic system that is killing the planet? Why do we feel guilty for using water when municipal golf courses use more water than municipal citizens? Why do we feel guilty for the waste we generate when industry creates 95% of all waste? Why do we feel guilty for buying things when a $560 billion global advertising machine is designed to brainwash us to buy? Why do we despair about social problems when the 2008 bank bailout could have run the world on solar energy, provided family planning and maternal care, paid for free health care, clean water and sanitation, decent housing, and free primary and secondary education for everyone on earth for the next 30 years? Join the discussion on the need for system change and how we can do it.
