Annual Good Government Luncheon of the Democratic World Federalists
1923 University Ave. in Berkeley, CA
Now is the time to embrace solutions to our mounting global crises. Let’s stop languishing in despair. Instead, let’s mount a “solution revolution”!Added to the calendar on Tuesday Mar 10th, 2015 11:00 PM
That’s the goal of the public talk to be given by Dr. Kevin Danaher at the Annual Good Government Luncheon of the Democratic World Federalists on March 28 in Berkeley. Dr. Danaher—well-known in the Bay Area as a distinguished author, global activist, and cofounder of Global Exchange, FairTradeUSA, and the Green Festivals—will take on such questions as:
• Why do we live with increasing environmental devastation?
• Why does our global economy cause such gross inequalities?
• What’s at the root of our frequent wars and threats of war?
This special event is designed to help concerned global citizens come to terms with the extractive economic system that creates these maladies, and to promote viable alternatives right now.
Fortunately, practical solutions are being tested at the global level. Dr. Danaher will discuss how, over the last several decades, a grassroots convergence of social, political, peace, and environmental movements is initiating the first ever “solution revolution.” This values revolution will, he says, “take us from a system where money-values rule over the life cycle to one where life-values rule over the money cycle.”
Dr. Kevin Danaher has long been at the forefront of this struggle. According to him, these citizen movements represent the core constituency for building a world democracy that will one day replace the United Nations, making possible the regenerative global system we urgently need.
