We are aware of the precarious risk to our environment—and our species—as never before. How do we move forward?
Barry Lopez looks straight in the face of threats to earth and the human race to offer a fundamentally hopeful message.
In Horizon, the National Book Award-winner, humanitarian and environmentalist shares eight decades of wilderness exploration that have shaped his bold perspective on our relationship to nature.
As science writer David Quamman explains, “The world is vast, and so are the heart and the curiosity of Barry Lopez. His voice is incomparable and necessary. No one else alive, to my knowledge, thinks so carefully about the moral dimensions of landscape.”
Join us as Lopez discusses this vision, Horizon and more in conversation with explorer, anthropologist and author, Wade Davis.
This event is presented in partnership with UBC’s School of Public Policy and Global Affairs, The Narwhal, Ocean Wise and BC Parks Foundation.
