A Global Call to Heal the Planet

September 28, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm MDT

What are the global limits to sustainable growth and development? Can we stay within them and how? Join an inspiring and insightful celebration of “The Limits to Growth” and its lead author Donella Meadows. “The Limits to Growth” had a profound influence on the early global environmental debate when published in 1972 by The Club of Rome. Donella Meadows enlightened that debate with her systems approach to understanding the dynamics and human dimensions of our environmental crisis before she passed away in 2000.

What can we learn from Donella’s life work upon the Club of Rome’s recent 50-year update of “The Limits to Growth?” How could this help us to address climate change and justice and to restore planetary health and well-being?
