#4f4f4f;" style="font-size: small; font-family: arial,helvetica,sans-serif; color: #4f4f4f;">The acclaimed Orion Magazine put some of America’s best thinkers to work on the question of what humanity needs to cultivate in order to improve its future. The result is a new book, Thirty-Year Plan: Thirty Writers on What We Need to Build a Better Future. One writer, Richard Louv, responded, “We need a new nature movement, one that includes but goes beyond traditional environmentalism and sustainability, one that paints a portrait of a compelling, inspiring society that is better than the one we presently live in.” Join us to hear from three thinkers who are part of this project, and share with us your own vision of the future.
