1 min read

MANCHESTER — Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning is welcoming Dr. Edward Cameron to discuss how to turn this moment of crisis into an opportunity to build a 21st century economy and society.

Cameron proposes it is one that is low-carbon, resilient, and inclusive in the post-pandemic era.

The talk will take place on Tuesday, September 15 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. via Zoom.

COVID-19 is a public health emergency and economic crisis of unparalleled scale.

Lives are cut short prematurely, the dreams of small business owners hang in the balance, and unemployment rises to levels unseen in a century or more.

It is natural that we want this nightmare to end and that we yearn for a return to normal, however, according to the upcoming speaker, normal wasn’t working.

This talk, based on Cameron’s recent book, “A World Made New,” will assess the world we currently live in, explain why we cannot return to the world of December 2019, and propose a series of recommendations for how we could build back better.

Registration for the talk is $15 per person in advance.
