Come together to explore the topic of "Responding to the Climate Crisis" in a conversation facilitated by philosopher-educators Paul Bodin and Caroline Lundquist.
This monthly forum for people of all ages and backgrounds offers an opportunity to share opinions and ideas in a structured setting to explore challenging topics with civility and consideration. With a different theme each month, the conversations will address deep and universal questions about life, identity, community, and responsibility.
This topic choice was inspired by a West African proverb: I am a citizen of a world not yet born. Bodin and Lundquist explain, "Today we are citizens of a world on fire. Solastalgia is a state of distress that we experience when familiar environments change for the worse in our lifetime and may never be the same again. Are we living in a time of solastalgia? Is this a time for despair? Or can we remake the world to become a better place?"
Community Philosophy Circles will take place on the second Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. through March.
