Climate change is taking place. Will we have the wisdom to survive?
Transition Berkeley invites you to join us for an inspiring film that focuses on how we can live creatively and even joyfully in the face of this catastrophe.
The Wisdom to Survive features thought leaders and activists in the realms of
science, economics and spirituality: Bill McKibben, Richard Heinberg, Joanna Macy, Gus Speth, Roger Payne and more.
We'll meet and greet from 6:30 to 7:00. Please bring locally grown snacks to share.
The film will be at 7:00 and followed by a discussion about how we can form strong
communities to meet the challenges we face. According to Joanna Macy:
“ If you want an adventure, boy! What a time to be alive! Don't waste time in self-pity over darkness. Don't waste time trying to figure out better circumstances that you might like. You're born into this and you're here to love it! And to see that it goes on ..” This evening promises to be thought-provoking and action promoting. See you there.
