How can we feed 11 BILLION people by the end of the century?
Living Organically - Fall Speaker Event and Trade Show
Winner of the Saskatchewan Book Award: The University of Saskatchewan President's Office 2015 Award for Non-Fiction, Paul Hanley’s book ELEVEN seek to answer this question, and talks about the important role organics will play as we prepare for mind-boggling number.
ELEVEN makes the case that a sustainable future will require an ethical revolution, one that will wholly transform humankind, reshaping its inner life and external conditions. This process will result in the emergence of a new culture, a new agriculture, and ultimately a new human race.
Current models cannot generate the level of change that is demanded. ELEVEN introduces a framework for global transformation: Only a dynamic, grassroots capacity-building process, involving individuals, communities, and institutions, in neighbourhoods and villages everywhere—linked together on a global scale--can make this transformation succeed.
Making the world work for 11 billion people will be humanity’s greatest challenge. That we will unite to meet this ultimate challenge is neither a utopian vision, nor even a matter of choice. It is the next, inescapable stage in human evolution.
