EcoReality on Salt Spring Island 1

“Gordon Katic is an environmentalist, but he doesn’t get out of the city very much. He’s plugged into politics, but removed from nature. So he boarded a ferry and went to a farming co-op on an island off the coast of BC. He found old hippies, a new-agey kid, and a man very afraid of peak oil. They all say that civilization is doomed, so they decided to escape. But what did they escape to?” – from the opening of EcoReality on Salt Spring Island 1.

This podcast is the first of a two part series about the Terry Project on CiTR documentary (#53) The End of Civilization Ecovillage. The main component is Gordon Katic’s program. There is also the beginning of Roy L Hales interview with Gorden Katic.

The Terry Project is a cross-faculty program at UBC designed to educate undergraduate students on pressing global issues like climate change, poverty, conflict and disease. Recognizing that these problems demand a rich multi-dimensional understanding, our chief aim is to create forums that promote interdisciplinary dialogue between students of the humanities and students of the life sciences. By hosting a prominent speakers series, organizing a TEDx student conference, offering an interdisciplinary academic course, and fostering a vibrant online community, we inspire students across disciplines to come together to discuss issues of global import.
