Saybrook Graduate School
747 Front Str., Third Floor
The so-called "green movement" has taken center stage in our awareness,
and a critical mass of Americans now believe that climate change, widespread
pollution, excessive consumption, and the rampant globalization of our
economies represent interrelated challenges that are likely to have
catastrophic consequences within our lifetimes if massive changes are not
undertaken. This evening's Dialogue will explore action taking as a catalyst for
birthing the new paradigm of living lightly and consciously on the planet as being the obvious thing to do.
