[Jon Symons and the cover of his book 'Ecomodernism'] What is ecomodenism, and can it inform our pursuit of a good future for humanity and the planet?

Our March meeting will be a special event: an evening in conversation with Jonathan Symons, the author of 'Ecomodernism: Technology, Politics and The Climate Crisis' (2019).

In the book, Symons offers an analysis of the ecomodernist movement—including the idea that technological innovation can get us out of the environmental mess we're in, but it will require government-level investment.

After an interview-style discussion with our host Andrea Leong, we will open it up to the room for questions. So check out the book and get your questions ready! Here's a recent interview to kick you off.

There is no cost to attend, but RSVPs are essential as space is limited. The only limit on attendance is the capacity of the internet.
