The Concord Area Humanists are a casual and inclusive collection of Humanists and secularists of all types from the Concord area in Massachusetts. We meet several times a month to discuss topics related to Humanism. Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without supernaturalism, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.
NOTE TIME CHANGE TO 6:30 PM. Towns and villages pepper perhaps half the global land surface, where nearly half of us live, and upon which everyone depends daily. Town ecology highlights towns (e.g.,[masked],000 residents) linked to surrounding villages, productive land or water, and natural land. Are floods typical? Town/village anatomy universal? Causes of town shrinkage, economic downturns and ecological succession linked? Adjacent zone distinctive? Importance of impervious surfaces? Dogs/cats significantly affect wildlife? Does town ecology promise major research, better towns, better land? Professor Forman will explore such questions based on his recent book, "Towns, Ecology, and the Land."
