CLIMATE TALK #8: GOOD Economics in a Destabilized Climate
Overcoming climate degradation through localized generative economics
Villanova University, Falvey Memorial Library
Nov. 26, 2012
The ClimateTalks.info roundtable and lecture series, at Villanova University, continued on Nov. 26, 2012, with an event focusing on GOOD Economics in a Destabilized Climate. (This event—originally scheduled for Nov. 1—had been postponed, due to the region-wide impact of Superstorm Sandy.)
Dr. Maghan Keita, PhD, director of Villanova’s Institute for Global and Interdisciplinary Studies, will be giving a talk on Reconstituting the Common Good.
Harriet Shugarman, also known as the “Climate Mama” and a trained Climate Reality presenter, will discuss the nature of the climate crisis and how it affects her, as a mother and a citizen.
Joseph Robertson, chair of Villanova’s PESC Subcommittee for Operations and Energy Use, will discuss G.O.O.D.-based economic thinking, outlined in the Sept. 2012 edition of the HotSpring Quarterly.
