A Talk on Cultural Sustainability with Dr. Rory Turner, Goucher College
Dr. Rory Turner founded, launched and continues to teach in Goucher College's Master of the Arts in Cultural Sustainability Program. Dr. Turner writes, "When we grapple with the challenges of sustainability, we need to consider not only the science of our impacts on the environment, but also the beliefs, values, and practices we engage in as participants and creators of a culture...Looking forward, we need cultural innovation and creativity in envisioning and designing livable and environmentally friendly communities. If we look inward, we just might discover that the things we really care about most, the heart of our culture and of our humanity, are simple things, the warmth of friends and family, the beauty of nature and the arts, good chat, healthy nourishing food, and so on, things that we do not have to destroy the planet to acquire." Free and open to the public.
