Popular Education: Mike Nickerson

April 1, 2019

How do we get a civilization that has been growing for 10,000 years to realize it is grown up now? Getting bigger is no longer what we need to do.

Mike Nickerson will describe in simple terms the problems with endless economic expansion, and discuss a model for long-term well-being for people and the planet.

This is the first installment of Nourish's Popular Education Series. Our goal is to invite speakers who want to unpack challenging issues and offer empowering avenues to make sense of them.

Mike Nickerson is the author of Life, Money and Illusion; Living on Earth as if we want to stay (2009), Planning for Seven Generations (1990), and Change the World I Want to Stay On (1977). He first encountered sustainability co-directing the Institute for the Study of Cultural Evolution. Presently he manages education programs for the 7th Generation Initiative and works on domestic ecosystems at the Lanark Eco-Village.
