Communities for Future
Our Response to the Climate Emergency
February 1-10, 2020
Albert Bates' view on our present moment is wide and clear: starting from a deep understanding of our ecosystems and of humans' particular impact on them, Albert brings indigenous and earth-centred wisdom into a carbon plan for restoring balance. Albert has the beautiful ability to look at our modern human behaviour as a natural stage of the larger cycle of life.
