Monthly Meeting 24 Nov 2011: Simpler Living

North America currently makes up  approximately 20% of the world's population, but uses 80% of the world's resources.  This runaway train of unjust consumption has affected much of the population of the globe, compromising their ability to feed and care for their children and themselves.  It also threatens to leave us, in North America, with a compromised environment, jeopardizing the future of our own children.  How do we slow down or stop the train?  How do we get off?  Join us for a presentation of these issues, and a discussion about how we might move forward justly, and thus redemptively.


Presenter: Val Hiebert, Professor of Sociology at Providence College

When: 24 November 7:00pm

Where: Eastman Education Centre, Loewen Blvd, Steinbach
