Symposium Panel: Visions of the Good Life
Date: 3:00pm - 4:30pm PDT October 27, 2009 Location: Stamm Hall
What visions of the good life have guided the American environmental movement and society? Is the green life the good life, or if not, what is missing? The Pacific Northwest is often viewed as an ecological utopia, yet is this vision of the good life a reality here? What should be the role of technology in achieving our vision of the good life? What cultural, psychological, or political forces may support or hinder our attainment of these visions?
