The Regenerative Economy in the Era of Climate Change with Kevin Bayuk
Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Euclid Ave Berkeley (full address with RSVP)
7:30pm-9:30pm Presentation and Interactive Salon
Kevin Bayuk works at the intersection of ecology and economy where permaculture design meets next-economy organizations intent on meeting human needs while enhancing the conditions conducive to all life.
He is a co-founder and partner with LIFT Economy, the Senior Financial Fellow at Project Drawdown and a founding partner of the Urban Permaculture Institute. He is also a co-founder of the Force for Good Fund the first ever crowdsourced investment fund and accelerator designed to grow best-for-the-world B Corps that are models for a more diverse, inclusive economy that works for the benefit of all life.
Join us for an inspiring, thought-provoking and interactive salon. We'll collectively explore the possibility of how we can redesign the economy to create regenerative outcomes of security, prosperity and a stable climate rather than outcomes of exploitation and inequity.
We’ll begin with some interactive discussion about the current economy, and the effect of the economy on the climate and regenerative design principles. Then Kevin will share about various projects, enterprises, and initiatives that are actually happening on the ground and how we can be involved in transitioning the economy to one that works for all with no one left out -- the next economy for the era of climate change and adaptation.
