Stewart Brand: Rethinking Green
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, Tuesday, Oct 5th, Multi-purpose Room, Liu Institute of Global Issues, UBC 
 
Founder of the Whole Earth Catalog, the Global Business Network, the Long Now Foundation and the Well, writer, editor and game designer, Stewart Brand has helped to define the collaborative, data-sharing, forward-thinking world we live in now. In his newest book, Whole Earth Discipline: An Ecopragmatist Manifesto, he compiles reflections and lessons learned from more than 40 years as an environmentalist. Brand suggests a shift in the environmentalists' dogmatic approach and describes a process of reasonable debate and experimentation. His iconoclastic proposals, which include transitioning to nuclear energy and ecosystem engineering, are sure to provoke widespread debate.

  
Cost: Free!
This event is hosted by the AMS, the UBCmix and the USI Teaching and Learning Office.
