Economic Hard times, Climate Change and the Messy Issues of Oil

  • Time: October 19, 2010 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm
  • Location: Room A104, Social Science and Math Bldg, University of Victoria
  • Organized By: Transition Victoria’s Heart & Soul working group
  • Event Description: Kathy McMahon, “How to Stay Sane as the World Goes Crazy: Economic Hard times, Climate Change and the Messy Issues of Oil” (in partnership with the Well Foundation and the Campus Urban Agriculture Club)

The blended crises of economics, environmental degradation and peak oil deeply affect “quality of life” for everyone, yet people tend to blame themselves or each other for lives fast in pace but poor in connectedness which are actually the result of the culture they live in. With humor and insight, Kathy explores ways of communicating better with those around us and arriving at a place of hope and positive action, despite the challenges of the times.
