Event Details

attack_dodo_sapiens

Eric Corey Freed gives us the “Attack of the Dodo-Sapiens:” his current 2013 presentation about innovative new models for sustainable development.

Our way of life is killing us. Whether by tradition or habit, the human race does some silly things that hurt us all in the long term. Our cities, buildings and surroundings have been designed around abundant and cheap oil, but now we have painted ourselves into a corner and are stuck there.

The next generation of buildings will have to do better than just energy efficiency and recycled materials. Our lack of foresight has made our building toxic, wasteful and unaffordable. Simply "being less bad" isn't enough and will delay our progress for generations. In order to undo the damage of the past, we need innovative, new models for how to build deep green, bio-based buildings.

This brand new talk is "bullet-point free" (no boring, text heavy slides used). Using rich graphics and video, this presentation will expand your imagination and and provide you a list of actions to take into your own community.
