Registration now open for 11th annual Earth Day Conference

Registration is now open for the 11th annual Nelson Institute Earth Day Conference.

This year’s theme is “Hope and Renewal in the Age of Apocalypse” and features an exciting line-up of provocative authors, leading thinkers, and creative problem solvers to explore these questions. Join us for a day of fresh ideas about climate change, wildlife conservation, economic growth, social justice, and other challenges that drive our anxieties and test our resolve.

Post-apocalyptic films and books are more popular than ever, with recent titles like The Hunger Games, The Passage, Snowpiercer, and The Walking Dead joining a rapidly growing list. What drives our fascination with the end of the world? Can this pop-culture phenomenon help us understand today’s environmental challenges and stimulate ideas to build a just, secure and sustainable future?
