Richard Heinberg Opening Lecture
Friday February 10th 5 – 7 pm
Theatre 5 (Room A130) Langara College
Richard Heinberg is one of the world’s most effective exponents of the urgent need to move away from fossil fuels and towards a post-growth economy. Author of 10 books, including 2010′s The End of Growth, his wry, unflinching approach addresses challenges such as climate change, peak oil, economic instability, and food insecurity.
He exposes the tenuousness of our current way of life, while exploring governmental responses and promising grassroots models in community resilience, including the Transition Town Movement and the Occupy Movement. Heinberg offers a radical vision for a truly sustainable future.
