Who: Schumacher North presents a talk and discussion with Peter Reason.
What: How can we fashion an adequate response to the devastating and unsustainable impact of human activities on the biosphere? Significant change toward sustainability requires a fundamental shift in our sense of who we humans are in relation to the planet that sustains us.
This talk and the interactive discussion that follows will draw on Peter’s experiences of ecological pilgrimage to explore how we can create this deep shift in awareness and help bring to birth a new chapter in the human story, where the integrity of the natural world is viewed as a fundamental priority at all levels of society.
Peter Reason was for many years a leading figure in the field of action research, and taught and led research in the field of sustainability. His recent book, Spindrift – A Wilderness Pilgrimage at Sea, published by Vala Books, won the non-fiction category of the Rubery Book Award for books from an independent publisher.
