The Long Now Foundation's monthly series Seminars About Long-term Thinking
Are we the first civilization to try and innovate our way out of climate change? How have past societies engineered sustainable solutions to a shifting world? Sander van der Leeuw, Chair of Anthropology at Arizona State University and External Faculty Member of the Santa Fe Institute, has spent his career studying these questions.
At his Seminar van der Leeuw will be exploring this research into the past, as well as its application to our current global predicament.
The purpose of the Seminars About Long-term Thinking is 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.
Long Now Members can reserve 2 complimentary seats.
