World issues Forum

After teaching international environmental law and politics for 20 years, Karen Litfin embarked upon a journey to ecovillages around the world to find models of living that could work for the long haul. From rural to urban, high tech to low tech, poor to affluent, and spiritual to secular communities, she learned that not only is another world possible, it is already being born in small pockets the world over. Join us for an inspiring slide presentation and discussion of how we can learn from ecovillages and scale up their lessons to existing social structures, from the local to the global.

Karen Litfin is Associate Professor of Political Science and Environmental Studies at the University of Washington. Her books include Ozone Discourses: Science and Politics in Global Environmental Cooperationand The Greening of Sovereignty. She endeavors to integrate the intellectual, emotional, and practical dimensions of sustainability. That commitment inspired her most recent book about her travels to ecovillages around the world: Ecovillages: Lessons for Sustainable Community.
