New Meetup: Stewart Brand and Alexander Rose at the ICA - 30 January 02010

From: Paul M.
Sent on: Sunday, January 10, 2010 8:04 PM
Hello all,

Thought you'd like to know about this upcoming event. Please book via the ICA!

What: Stewart Brand and Alexander Rose at the ICA - 30 January 02010

When: Saturday, January 30,[masked]:30 PM

Where:
ICA
The Mall
London SW1Y 5AH


Stewart Brand, president of the Long Now Foundation and managing director of Global Business Network, presents some radical, counter-intuitive observations that shatter a number of environmental myths, and lays out a strategy for producing a more sustainable society.

In his new book, Whole Earth Discipline: An Ecopragmatic Manifesto, Brand argues that, "The long-evolved green agenda is suddenly outdated - too negative, too tradition-bound, too specialised, too politically one-sided for the scale of the climate problem. Environmentalists risk being marginalised more than ever, with many of their deep goals and well-honed strategies irrelevant to the new task. Accustomed to saving natural systems from civilisation, Greens now have the unfamiliar task of saving civilisation from a natural system - climate dynamics.

Brand will be in conversation with Alexander Rose, executive director of the Long Now Foundation and a nominating judge at the Webbys.

Tickets are ?12 (?10 ICA members and ?11 concs). Please book via the ICA - not via this Meetup group!
