In this Episode Mr. Pollan joins Executive Director Martin Bourque as they discuss Ecotopia’s food production system which utilizes agroecology and sewage to reach a stable and restorative state. They will dive deep into diverging paths forward from ocean permaculture, plant-based diets, to precision agriculture, agricultural robots, and food and meat grown in labs. Together they will envision a future of healthy, sustainable, and just food production for the year 2050.
Ecotopia 2050 is designed as a 5-Episode speaker discussion series with the first episode serving as an introduction/prelude to the event. The speaker discussion series is paired with corresponding book club meetings that give participants a more intimate opportunity to discuss the themes of the book in the community.
Based on the 1975 blockbuster utopian novel Ecotopia, this discussion and book club event series revisit some of the futuristic visions of the Ernest Callenbach classic. His visionary ideas, and those of his generation, that he so skillfully captured in Ecotopia are a fascinating amalgam of technical, economic, societal, and cultural transformations. They are predictive on so many levels, and the series will explore what has come true, what remains on the list of things to do that were proposed, and what new visions we might begin to pull together in the construction of an updated Ecotopian vision of today.
You do not have to have read the book to enjoy and gain insight & knowledge from the series!
