In July 2019 Resilience.org hosted Post Carbon Institute’s Uncertain Future Forum—an essay conversation on timely, controversial, under-exposed topics related to humanity’s sustainability predicament.
This Forum’s topic was:
Each day featured a new, original essay from one of four invited contributors: investigative journalist Dahr Jamail, sociologist and community activist Meghan Kallman, poet Taylor Brorby, and renowned indigenous rights advocate Winona LaDuke. The first week featured their responses to the topic; the second week featured their reactions to—and inspirations sparked by—each other’s essays. On the final day, Post Carbon Institute’s Asher Miller wrote a reflection on the essays and the comments that our readers contributed.
