THE WISDOM TO SURVIVE (2014, 56 minutes) accepts the consensus of scientists that climate change has already arrived, and asks, what is keeping us from action? The film explores how unlimited growth and greed are destroying the life support system of the planet, the social fabric of the society, and the lives of billions of people. Will we have the wisdom to survive? The film features thought leaders and activists in the realms of science, economics and spirituality discussing how we can evolve and take action in the face of climate disruption. They urge us to open ourselves to the beauty that surrounds us and get to work on ensuring it thrives.

"The Wisdom to Survive is both instructive and inspiring...it shows people working in practical, transformational, and imaginative ways to bring about a fundamentally different and more just and sustainable world." Joseph Nevins, Vassar College.

Did you know that he United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has declared areas of Prince George's County, including College Park, food deserts?

To address the food desert situation in College Park, the Affordable Grocery and Healthy Eating Project seeks to ensure that UMD students are provided with adequate access to local, nutritious and affordable groceries. We are looking to gain more information about College Park's food desert and to identify promising options to improve access and availability of local, affordable, and nutritious foods to help Terps and the broader College Park community to enjoy a healthy lifestyle. This project seeks to inform, educate and inspire students and the broader community about the benefits of local, affordable, nutritious and sustainable food choices for a lifetime of healthy living.

Where: Skinner : 1115
Event Type(s): Colloquium

"The Marrow of Belief"

Contemporary epistemology offers us two very different accounts of our epistemic lives. According to Traditional epistemologists, the decisions that we make are motivated by our desires and guided by our beliefs and these beliefs and desires all come in an all-or-nothing form. In contrast, many Bayesian epistemologists say that these beliefs and desires come in degrees and that they should be understood as subjective probabilities and utilities.

What are we to make of these different epistemologies? Are the Tradionalists and the Bayesians in disagreement, or are their views compatible with each other? Some Bayesians have challenged the Traditionalists: Bayesian epistemology is more powerful and more general than the Traditional theory, and so we should.....

When: Monday, April 28, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Where: 1102 South Campus Commons, Building 1
Event Type(s): Movie/Film/Video

HIGH TECH, LOW LIFE follows the journey of two of China's first citizen reporters as they travel the country -- chronicling underreported news and social issues stories. Armed with laptops, cell phones, and digital cameras they develop skills as independent one-man news stations while learning to navigate China's evolving censorship regulations and avoiding the risk of political persecution. The film follows 57-year-old "Tiger Temple," who earns the title of China's first citizen reporter after he documents an unfolding murder and 27-year-old "Zola" who recognizes the opportunity to increase his fame and future prospects by reporting on sensitive news in China. Zola and Tiger Temple must both reconcile an evolving sense of individualism, social responsibility and personal sacrifice. Zola's journey from produce vendor to internet celebrity, and Tiger Temple's commitment to understanding China's tumultuous past provides an alternate portrait of China and of 21st century news gathering.
