Imagine, it is the year 2050 and we are looking back to the origin and evolution of the coronavirus pandemic over the last three decades. Extrapolating from recent events, Hazel Henderson, founder of Ethical Markets and Fritjof Capra, founding director of the Berkeley-based Center for Ecoliteracy, offer a compelling scenario for such a view from the future in their recent article published by Ethical Markets. Join SSF Executive Director Edward Saltzberg and Hazel as they explore the insights in the article and the lessons for moving forward toward a more sustainable global society. They will be joined by Mirian Vilela, the executive director of Earth Charter International.
