The Long Now Foundation's monthly series Seminars About Long-term Thinking
Mayor Gavin Newsom presents
Cities and Time
Mayor Newsom is a strong advocate for sustainable urban planning and green business practices; he lead San Francisco to join the Kyoto Protocol, created significant incentives for solar power installation through the GoSolarSF program, and is working on an ambitious plan to make SF the "Electric Vehicle Capital of the U.S". He will discuss his ideas and plans for shaping the growth of cities during these turbulent times.
The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.
