45 LEADING SCHOLARS, AUTHORS AND ACTIVISTS will convene at The Great Hall of Cooper Union, New York City, on October 25 & 26 for a public “TEACH-IN” on the profound impacts—environmental, economic and social—of runaway technological expansionism and cyber immersion; the tendency to see technology as the savior for all problems. A change of direction is required, returning the fate of nature to the center of economic and social decision making.
