Schumacher Lectures, and in anticipation of the October 25, 2020 Lectures with Kali Akuno and George Monbiot, we are highlighting the work of past speakers, asking for updates of their earlier remarks, and inviting them to reflect on current conditions.

On July 16 at 2pm Eastern, a pre-recorded conversation between Richard Heinberg and Helena Norberg-Hodge, moderated by Matt Stinchcomb, was premiered on YouTube. In their video, they reflected on their original talks given current political, economic, and social realities and comment on each other’s work.
