Humans are changing Earth’s natural systems in rapid and unprecedented ways. This has propelled our planet into a new geologic era: the anthropocene. How do we navigate these changes we’ve caused, where can we have positive impacts…and where do we find hope? We’re bringing in six experts with a diversity of perspectives to speak on these very things. Join us!

Our final series speaker is Dan Spencer, Professor in Environmental Studies at the University of Montana. Join us for his lecture, Knowing Earth, Loving Earth: Ethics and Science in the Anthropocene.
How can we know and care for our world intimately in a time of rapid social and environmental change, characterized by disputed facts and political polarization? Explore together ways we can work within and across our differences to use science and ethics to understand and protect the Earth and our local environments as our common home.

Check out our full list of speakers and topics here.

Cost per lecture: $10; $5 members; FREE for high school and college students.

Purchase tickets here.  (We will also sell tickets at the door, but purchasing in advance will ensure you get a seat!)
