Ecology is beyond being a discipline, it is a way of seeing. To better understand this, Gregory will link a variety of ideas, projects and policies important to our understanding of - and our ability to act upon - the reality of a climate crisis.
Piecing together a new future will not be easy and many now believe we have already waited too long. But the student led revolution to change direction is well underway. The changes they are demanding will emerge quicker and more democratically in our small rural communities and then spread to our more urbanized centres.
Ecological Integrity, Community and the Human Prospect is a conversation about the deeper questions of what it means to be alive, to be human; what it means to be frightened and what it means to be hopeful; what it means to govern and be governed in the transition to a more appropriate economic, social and political future - a future less about being prosperous and more about the whole notion of propriety. This transition begins by asking ourselves how we keep what we really want and let go of what no longer matters.
This event is free and open to the public.
Gregory is a Municipal Councillor in Annapolis County, NS. He holds a PhD in Ecology with post graduate studies in religion and philosophy, and has spoken, written and published on economics, environment, and public policy. He is also the Executive Director of the Centre for Local Prosperity.
