(2nd panel) Teach- In on why Technology will not save the world. 45 Scholars, Authors & Activists over two days provide an analysis on why immediate change is required in our thinking,
behavior, values and economies.

"TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION, celebrated throughout history, has had profound effects upon Nature, and human beings - our ways of thought, operating systems, power structures, and how we experience our own existence. This is especially so in the new cyber-tech world. Justifications still range from humanity's "unquenchable thirst" for knowledge, to the impareatives of economic growth, wealth and power in our economic system, to the acclaimed search to bring comfort and happiness to a global population. So, how have we done? What have been the trade offs? Meanwhile, spectacular, dreadful impacts continue and accelerate. Immediate change is required in our thinking, behavior, values and economies, before Nature and society are terminated." (Event program)

Human consciousnesses barely grasps the fact that the "Sixth Great Extinction" of Earth's life forms is underway due to human action or that humans have no greater significance in the ecological mix than bacteria. This epic teach-in seeks to frame the issues and offer ecologically sane alternatives that could result in a way out of the termination of Nature and society.
