Sustainism as the New Modernism?
Friday, August 5, 2011, 3–5 pm
Join us for a two-hour pressure-cooker encounter with FreedomLab Future Studies as visionary Michiel Schwarz and facilitator Vincent Rump explore what the emerging culture of “sustainism” means for the local. In a co-creation session that will take a truly integral approach to urban life and the future—in which sustainability, localism, social connectivity, and globalization meet—participants will help formulate new principles for the sustainist era. As the new ethos of our time, sustainism will shape everything from design, food, and our environment to consumption, community, and our sense of place.
