This Tuesday, April 16, we’ll be releasing State of the World 2013: Is Sustainability Still Possible?, in Washington, D.C.
The event will feature a dozen of the book’s contributors, who will share their expertise and ideas on the three main themes of the book, discussing how the term “sustainability” should be measured, how we can attain it, and how we can prepare if we fall short.
You can join us in person if you’re in the DC area, or via live web stream around the world. And for those who can join in person, space is limited, so be sure to RSVP for the symposium and reception that follows!
