CHATTANOOGA INSTITUTE OF NOETIC SCIENCE

Saturday, April 8, 2006 CHION Meeting
10:30 A.M-12:00 noon

Creating a Sustainable Society 
presented by Dr. Olin Ivey


A discussion of the meaning and implementation of sustainability and how it differs from environmentalism. The Brundtland U N Commission defined sustainability as "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."  Sustainability involves the simultaneous pursuit of economic prosperity, environmental quality and social equity. Dr. Ivey defines it as "attempting to live in conscious concert with nature." Each participant is asked to come prepared to share one aspect of his or her life which demonstrates how to live sustainably on a daily basis. What does sustainability mean for my own life?


Dr. Olin Ivey has spent much of the last 15 years of his life working on aspects of sustainability. His vision is the reformulation of human consciousness around sustainability as the basis for decision-making and action and as the norm for society. He is the Associate for Stewardship and Outreach at Pilgrim Congregational Church (UCC) and the Co-Executive Director of the Urban Century Institute, a non-profit organization based in Chattanooga and dedicated to sustainability.
We hope to see you there.
