IMAGINE: David Jaber Author Visit at Half Moon Bay Library

Imagine. See the vision of secure thriving communities across the globe. So many elements of this vision have been known for 20 years, 50 years and even millennia. So why haven't we made more progress?

Sustainability is one of those words we often hear when talking about the future of our very own planet Earth. As the world’s population continues to grow and is projected to continue growingopens a new window into the following century, we are faced with a question of sustainability. How do we adapt our consumption so others may accommodate the increase in population? Who should be responsible to make sure we get there? Do we even understand or know what any of this means?
