The Future is Wild: The Mick Dark Talk for the Future 2016

  • Kindlehill School 8 Lake St Wentworth Falls, NSW (map)

The Mick Dark Talk for the Future honours the generosity and legacy of Varuna’s patron Mick Dark, with a talk to inspire community discussion of environmental issues of local and global significance.

The Future is Wild will see two internationally respected speakers, Jane Gleeson-White and Claire Dunn, respond to the challenges we face when contemplating a sustainable future and acting with the knowledge that we are not separate from but intrinsically connected to nature. Facilitated by writer and poet, Dr Kate Fagan, the discussion will draw out points of view grounded in economic and personal philosophy.

In her book Six Capitals: The Revolution capitalism has to have, Jane Gleeson-White urged readers to extend the familiar concepts of financial and manufactured capital to include four new categories of wealth: intellectual, human, social and relationship, and natural capital. Claire Dunn, a passionate advocate for “rewilding” our inner and outer landscapes, spent a year living off the grid and learning wilderness survival skills and wrote about this experience in her memoir My Year Without Matches: Escaping the City in Search of the Wild.
