“Speakers will debate the tradeoffs involved in conserving Earth’s natural resources, discuss new models for sustainable business practices and examine the relationship between democracy and sustainable development,” The Washington Post said.
The announcement comes the same week as the journal BioScience published a paper cosigned by 15,000 scientists from around the world. That paper, “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice,” is a follow up to a 1992 paper that argued that humans are “on a collision course with nature.”
A World in Balance takes place on Thursday, November 16th, at 9:00 AM EST. You can sign up to be notified of the live streaming event.
