Design with Nature to Heal our Earth

Real wealth is “the technological ability to protect, nurture and support the needs of life.”

 —Buckminster Fuller

Join us for an inspiring evening of conversation with the renowned ecological design pioneers John and Nancy Jack Todd together with Greg Watson, Director of Policy and Systems Design at the Schumacher Center for a New Economics. Together they will discuss the issues at the heart of John's new book, Healing Earth: An Ecologist’s Journey of Innovation and Environmental Stewardship

Watson writes, John “has presented us with a highly accessible manual that has already resulted in boots-in-the mud solutions to extremely fouled waters around the world.  His eco-machines provide powerful examples of how to address serious environmental problems . . .  [and] enhance the wealth of economically disadvantaged and/or exploited communities.”

Summer Talks is curated by Jotham Burrello and Elizabeth Thompson.
