What will future generations say about us? That we kept up economic growth by buying a lot of stuff? Or that we sacrificed and worked to make a beautiful strong place and that we taught our children and grandchildren how to live well.

Stephanie Sy, an anchor at Al Jazeera America, will moderate the discussion.

Karenna Gore and Center for Earth Ethics see our ecological crisis as the consequence of a deeper malady: the dominant economic development agenda that results in the exploitation of people and nature for short-term and inequitable financial gain. So for real change to occur, a new paradigm based on the sustained well-being of all people and our planet must materialize.
How are Gore and the CEE working to make this happen? What is the role of spiritual, indigenous, and religious communities?
