Are Western Goals and Beliefs Compatible with Sustainability?
Dr. Lynn Oliphant, professor emeritus, University of Saskatchewan, will argue that the growth in the human enterprise resulting from western society’s basic beliefs and goals is at the root of virtually all of the current existential threats we face. These threats range from the looming climate crisis and loss of biodiversity to global pandemics and war.
