Lester R. Brown
Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization (NORTON)
Reading & Book Signing
Join us for a special evening with Lester R. Brown, Founder and President of Earth Policy Institute. Described as "one of the world's most influential thinkers," Brown is the author or co-author of over 50 books. He will discuss his new book Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization. "Will we follow in the footsteps of the Sumerians and the Mayans or can we change course—and do it before time runs out?" asks Brown. "Can we move onto an economic path that is environmentally sustainable? We think we can. That is what Plan B 4.0 is about."
This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the UW Office of Global Affairs, Pacific Northwest Center for Global Security, World Affairs Council, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Washington State China Relations Council.
