Join us for a dialogue with evolutionary theorist John Stewart!

Visiting us from Australia, John uses a science-based understanding of the trajectory of evolution to identify how humanity must evolve if we are to continue to succeed in evolutionary terms.

He has summarized his approach in The Evolutionary Manifesto, which discusses what humanity will need to intentionally advance the evolutionary process on Earth if it is to participate positively in the future evolution of life in the universe.

Agenda for the evening:

1. 7:00pm: We will start with a brief update and introduction to The Pachamama Alliance.
2. 8:00-9:00pm: John Stewart's presentation.

But come early! Our venue, Peña Pachamama, is a South American restaurant and they'll be happy to serve all organic goodies for you starting at 6:00pm.
