February Asking the Big Questions

After a holiday hiatus Asking the Big Questions is back on Thursday, February 12. Please join us at 7:00 p.m. as we continue to discuss the book Plan B 3.0 by Lester R. Brown. Up for this month is Chapters 9 and 10 focusing on feeding the Earth's six billion plus population and designing cities that are healthier for human beings. The guest speaker will be UMM Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and Dean Cheryl Contant.

Haven't been to a discussion before? That's fine. Simply read the chapters online at Plan B 3.0 and then come on the 12th. Don't have time to do the reading? That's okay too. Just bring yourself and contribute to the discussion anytime you like. Participation isn't mandatory and there is always something interesting being talked about. Refreshments will be served starting at 6:30 p.m.
