The Events:

  • Multiple lectures on Thursday, February 23 (4:00-6:30 p.m.) and Friday, February 24 (4:00-6:30 p.m.) in the Jeremy Warren Vann Teacher Ed Center (86 Wentworth St.)

The Discussion: One of the biggest questions facing the world today is how to sustainably balance the needs of society while also adjusting to a changing environment. We have much to learn from a long-term historical perspective on the symbiotic relationship between human society and the environment.
