Food from the Radical Center: How Collaborative Conservation is Healing the Wounds & Creating Green Livelihoods in the Rural West

Since 1970 Earth Day's engagement of 20 million grassroots environmentalists, the environmental movement has been plagued by division, elitism and us vs them politics. A counter movement -variously called the radical center or middle path has emerged in the rural West that takes a non-dualistic approach to jobs vs environmental protection, science vs faith, urban vs rural values, and ecosystem health vs inclusive community well-being. Examples from cam beds, shoreline fisheries, mesquite grasslands, and UNESCO cities of gastronomy and national heritage areas will be offered as parables of hope.

Monday, February 24 at 7 PM in the UCSC Cowell Hay Barn
