Join Worldchanging.com and the Buckminster Fuller Institute for a reception and evening of art, music and inspired discussion as we celebrate the launch of the much-anticipated new book:
WorldChanging: A User's Guide to the 21st Century
The event will be part of an on-going installation/performance piece by environmental artist Beaumont entitled: Boxed-In/Boxed Out, sponsored by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
* Alex Steffan, founder of Worldchanging and editor of the new book, will speak about the work of the organization and the book project.
* Dr. Michael Ben-Eli, former student and collaborator of R. Buckminster Fuller, will connect today’s ‘bright green’ revolution to the pioneering legacy of R. Buckminster Fuller, and discuss his Five Principles of Sustainability.
* Beaumont, award-winning environmental artist, will discuss her project Boxed In/Boxed Out, addressing the continual displacement of artists and imagining what a sustainable model for an all-inclusive community might look like.
