The Sustainability Problem

“The Sustainability Problem:
University Of Denver
As the comedian John Oliver says, “Nobody knows what sustainability means but we feel good when we say it.” This presentation addresses the problem of sustainability in general, and sustainability education in particular. The limitations of several current sustainability frameworks are presented, and the “social trap” of educating within currently accepted worldviews is described. Anton will define a grounded philosophy that will enable sustainability leaders to overcome these barriers.
Participants will be invited to take part in an educational pilot project in association with Jeff Bridges and his latest film “Living in the Future’s Past.” [Pre-registrants will receive background materials with the log-on URL for the webinar.]
