Sustainability Series

  • Executive Director, The Resource Innovation Group
  • Center for Sustainable Communities, Willamette University

Global climate change threatens to undermine the conditions that allow civilization to thrive on Earth. The economy continues to sputter and economic inequity is growing. Many people sense that the systems we have long relied on are in danger of collapsing. Yet few can explain why, or know what to do about it.

In this interactive, thought-provoking presentation, systems change specialist Bob Doppelt will explain that the problems we face today are of our own making. They are the result of the greatest failure of thought in human history.

Bob Doppelt is an adjunct instructor in the Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management at the University of Oregon.
