Lectures by Mary Evelyn Tucker
Seoul, Korea and PyeongChang Forum in Gangwon Province, Korea

The Journey of the Universe film and book, written by Brian Thomas Swimme and Mary Evelyn Tucker, invite us to reflect on our role and responsibility to the flourishing of communities within evolutionary cosmology. How can the life of ecosystems and species be enhanced by humans, not irrevocably damaged? The Journey Conversations explore in what ways humans can contribute to the “great work” of building sustainable cities, resilient food systems, ecological economies, and alternative energies. As planetary citizens we are asking: How can our creativity be aligned with Earth’s creativity.
