CAMBRIDGE FORUM invites you to join our discussion on Wednesday, October 20 at 5 pm.

What are we willing to give up in order to save the planet? And what would happen to our economies and our lives if we seriously committed to consuming fewer of the Earth’s resources?

This experimental scenario is the basis for James MacKinnon’s latest book, THE DAY THE WORLD STOPS SHOPPING pm on Wednesday, October 20 at 5 pm (ET) to hear the author tells us about his mission to get us to buy a lot less stuff insisting that even reducing our consumption by just 5% would make a big difference and we would barely notice the shift.

J. B. MacKinnon teaches journalism at the University of British Columbia and makes documentaries. He enjoys exploring the intersection between the wired and wild worlds, and lives in Vancouver, Canada. Vincent Stanley from Patagonia, co-author of the The Responsible Company will join the conversation. Stanley affirms that businesses should make useful, long-lasting products in a socially and environmentally responsible way. What do you think?

Register here and now to take part in this important webinar.
