Courtesy Transition Towns:
Richard Heinberg‘s quest for a more resilient, sustainable, and healthy future comes to New Zealand thanks to the Post Carbon Institute, Grey Lynn 2030 and Sustainable Business Network.
Richard will bring his challenging and compelling message. He’ll ask — and answer — some of the most challenging questions we face:
• Will the convergence of financial instability, the end of cheap oil, and climate change usher in an era of contraction?
• Will we transition to a new economy that doesn’t depend on growth fueled by cheap energy, reckless consumption and financial speculation?
• How can communities’ best prepare for economic volatility and thrive in a re-localized world?
• Can we pursue improvements in education, the arts, health, well-being, freedom, and happiness without ever-expanding consumption?
Richard will also be speaking at the council offices in Hamiton at 12pm on Oct 1st and Tauranga at Baycourt at 7:15 on Oct 1st also.
Public Lecture on Sunday 30 September, 1pm-3pm, Auckland University Fisher & Paykel Auditorium, Owen G Glenn Building, University of Auckland Business School. All welcome – suggested donation $5-$10.
