Meridian's Integral MBA in collaboration with Impact Hub Oakland present...

Beyond the Green Economy:
Charles Eisenstein and Aftab Omer in Conversation
Tuesday, October 21, 2014 @ 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

The concept of the Green Economy seeks to align money with ecological values. As such it is a positive step, but it ignores deeper forms of social, cultural, and spiritual hegemony. Increasingly, it is at this deeper level that we are called to act: a transition not only in our institutions but also in our ways of thinking, knowing, and relating.

The evening will include:

  • Charles and Aftab in conversation
  • Dialogue from a panel of guests who will respond to key points that arose from the conversation between Charles and Aftab.
  • Interactive participant engagement
