Program for Sunday, March 13, 2022
Join us as Madhavi Venkatesan, economist and founder of Sustainable Practices, discusses the individual challenge and the collective potential of living within the environment. Our present economic system has promoted an implicit perspective that we control the environment but the speed of climate change is sufficient evidence that the environment, natural forces, the Earth have a balance of their own. The discussion will address the inconsistency between our present economic worldview and the attainment of sustainability.
