Life on Earth 4
By Florence Windfall
Florence’s talk this Sunday, in honor of the Autumnal Equinox 2011, will be about the urgency of combining environmentalism with Humanism. Traditionally, both have been fraught with elitism. But today they must be reinterpreted so as to support workaday people with environmental and Humanist goals. After her talk, Florence will facilitate a round-robin discussion on the issues she brought up.
Traditionally, Humanism did not officially include ecological or environmental awareness. Humanism was about humans. But today it does; today Humanism embraces the environment, or what used to be called conservation. And what exactly do Humanists think they should do for the environment today? Do Humanists expect to save the Earth, or some part of it, from environmental destruction today? What do YOU think Humanists should be doing for the environment? And what are YOU doing, or what would you like to be doing, for conservation today?
Our Sunday talks are accompanied by pot luck refreshments. Please feel free to bring scrumptious food, organic and local, suitable for brunch. Our doors open at 10:30 am and this talk will begin at 11:00 am.
