What do we owe future generations? We can mean numerous things when talking about our obligations or debts to the future. We might think our current attitudes and practices towards environmental concerns should focus on future generations instead of ourselves. If so, we might support efforts towards sustainability that involve sacrificing numerous benefits for ourselves in favor of helping a future society. Yet, why not think our needs and interest demand more attention than an unknown future? Join us June 27th as we discuss the relationship between environmental concerns and our potential obligations to future generations.

This event is intended to foster discussion and drinking in a fun atmosphere. There will be a brief (15 - 20 minutes) presentation of the issue followed by general discussion and argument. All are strongly encouraged to participate in the discussion (that’s the whole point!).

Does the advancement of the internet, and technology in general, signal greater access and use of knowledge for a wide range of people? While some have claimed the internet functions as a kind of ‘democratization of knowledge’, others have argued such wide-ranging access has fostered little progress in creating a more informed populous. Does this mean that technological advancements have, in fact, done little to bolster educational and epistemic practices? Should we see the rapid pace of technological advancement as beneficial to society?
