All welcome! Childcare available upon request. Join us at 3pm for coffee, intros, and announcements; our featured presentation with guest speaker, Nate Hagens, begins at 3:15pm; discussion to follow. Social hour begins around 4:30 with nibbles and drinks.

Nate Hagens is a public intellectual and futurist who tries to make sense of our situation -and avenues for change - by looking at systems science - how the big picture of energy, economy, environment and human behavior fit together.

Specifically, Nate will speak about how our culture is now growth-constrained which means the probable choreography in the next decade is unlikely to be what most people expect. His talk will conclude with discussion on what Minnesota residents can do - should do - for themselves and for their communities to participate in our rapidly unfolding uncertain future.

Nate teaches Reality 101-The Human Predicament at the University of Minnesota and is developing a series of related projects for humans living differently with each other, within nature, this century.

If you need childcare, please contact Audrey at [masked] no later than October 15th to reserve space.
