John Cronin: "The Imagined Environment"
Introduced by Thomas Bartscherer
Part of the ROSTRUM series, hosted by The Language and Thinking Program at Bard College languageandthinking.bard.edu/
John Cronin is the Senior Fellow for Environmental Affairs, Pace Academy, New York. He spoke in Olin Auditorium on the Bard campus on August 18, 2014.
Every great accomplishment begins with an act of the imagination, and then an act of courage to see it through. Thinkers as diverse as Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Dr. Richard Feynman encourage us to dream large and boldly. But do we have the courage to imagine a different environmental future or are we defined by the very things we protest? Co-sponsored by Bard’s Sustainability Council.
