Ecotecture for the Anthropocene-Europe­an Perspectives from Ecovillagers

We lose a species every ten minutes in the middle of the sixth mass extinction on Earth, the human species must evolve or become itself extinct. Ecotecture is an evolutionary response, not a technical fix to evolve and survive in the anthropocene.

Sally Starbuck and Paul Leech of Gaia EcotectureWe wish to share our practical experience in Europe over nearly forty years in eco-architectural practice, and learn from and discuss the California/US experience. This 2 hour seminar will include interleaved presentations by Sally Starbuck (England) and Paul Leech (Ireland) of Gaia Ecotecture. Then open discussion, aimed at strategies & tactics of transition, and methodology.
