The challenges of the 21st century are immense. To meet them, we need radical transformation of current institutions – those ways of living, from banking to building, from transportation to tree harvesting, that define us. For this presentation, Cathy will introduce the organization Ecotrust, and share a suite of projects that feature water as a connective element to its work, from the economic benefits of salmon habitat restoration to ecological forestry, green buildings, and community fisheries. In each vignette she will explore how knowledge, capital, and technology are leveraged as pathways for change.
