Description

These days, too many of us believe that the planet is spiraling toward increasing authoritarianism and violence, a paralyzing global wealth gap, and unstoppable climate catastrophe.

Others, including our distinguished panelists, hold out the possibility that we are undergoing a cultural evolutionary “sea change,” as dominant human values move toward a closer fit with our deepening understanding of the world we live in.

We hope you’ll join us for a serious but surprisingly hopeful year-end conversation on Peace, Justice, and Sustainability.

Jim and his guests will explore a range of issues and ideas that will clarify our understanding of three critical areas:

• Peace and nonviolent conflict resolution,

• Social and economic justice and universal human rights, and

• Ecological sustainability and the climate crisis.

And, throughout this essential exploration, our participants will help us focus on possibilities for commitment and action so that every caring and creative person can find a path to engagement.

Our panel:

Jim Kenney, former founding trustee and Global Director, Parliament of the World’s Religions; author, Thriving in the Crosscurrent: Clarity and Hope in a Time of Cultural Sea Change.

Nancy Tuchman, Founding Dean, Institute of Environmental Sustainability at Loyola University Chicago.

Ahmad Sadri, James P. Gorter Chair of Islamic World Studies at Lake Forest College (IL).

John Wasik, journalist, speaker, author of 17 books, including Lightning Strikes: Timeless Lessons in Creativity from the Life and Work of Nikola Tesla.
