The 3rd Annual Earth 2100 Conference: Learn. Network. Act!
July 26-27, 2014
George Mason University, Fairfax VA
Our human ecological footprint has reached a totally unsustainable 1.5 Earths. Our global culture is consuming and producing wastes at unprecedented rates. Many of our resources are being depleted beyond recovery. We are causing a new, planet-wide mass extinction.
These are serious problems that demand action, especially by young adults.
The Earth 2100 Conference is a safe, social space for thoughtful, civil, intergenerational dialogue about these and other global issues that young people will confront over the course of their lives.
