*Climate Crisis, Global Wars, and Sustainability*
A Round Table Discussion with Presentations

*Wednesday, September 21st, 6pm
Inst. for Human Centered Design
200 Portland Street, Boston*

Join us for a round table discussion with a diverse group of presenters,
among them: Valerie Fletcher of the IHCD, Biologist Maggie Zhou of Climate
SOS and UNAC, and Systems Science student, Garry Sotnik, visiting from the
hub of environmental innovation, Portland, Oregon and presenting his paper
on Portland's five Ecodistrict Pilots (an initiative launched in 2009 in the
City of Portland to catalyze the city’s transition process towards
sustainable development).

What are the root causes of the climate catastrophes and the effects of
global warfare and corporate imperialism on the increasing vulnerability of
our ecosystems and social cohesion? We will open the floor for an open
discussion on the role of community organizing within the environmental
movement and the prospects of transitioning to sustainability beyond the
current social order.
