Upcoming Teach-In: Techno-Utopianism and the Fate of the Earth, Oct 25-26, Cooper Union

On October 25th and 26th, 45 LEADING SCHOLARS, authors and activists will convene at The Great Hall of the Cooper Union, New York City, for a PUBLIC “TEACH-IN” on the profound impacts – environmental, economic and social – of runaway technological expansion; the tendency to see technology as the savior for all problems. And, on the urgent need to change directions; returning the fate of nature to the center of economic and social decision making.

Farm Hack board member, Severine VT Fleming, will be joining the conversation. Learn more here and register here!.

The event is a joint project of the International Forum on Globalization, The International Center for Technology Assessment, The New York Open Center and the Schumacher Center for New Economics and is cosponsored by The Foundation for Deep Ecology, Foundation Earth, Local Futures/International Society for Ecology and Culture, the Greenhorns, the Agrarian Trust, The Oakland Institute, and the Post Carbon Institute.
