About this Event

General Description

Based on the 1975 blockbuster utopian novel Ecotopia, this discussion and book club event series revisits 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.

As the Ecology Center also commemorates its 50th Anniversary, the series is reflective of some of the aspirations and visions that the original founders of the Ecology Center had for the Bay area and Beyond. The vision for a world of sustainable cities; empowered, resilient communities; zero waste and zero toxins; equal access to healthy food; sustainable resource use; and a safe and stable climate.
