Always Looking Up - HNC Free Talk

  • Date: Monday, March 13, 2017
  • Time: 7 pm- 9pm
  • Location: Royal Botanical Gardens Headquarters

Like you, anthropologist and children’s book author, Jackie Prime is ready to implement change to make our world a more compassionate place. Feeling the impacts and experiencing the dramatic social change driven by globalization, environmental change, economic crises, and growing inequalities in basic human rights, we all see that people, animals, and the planet are suffering, but how can we implement lasting change? Is there a way to regain balance and reconnect? Are humans really separate from each other and from nature? Or is there a different story waiting to be told?

With over a decade of teaching and research experience studying the behaviours and cognitive abilities of primates, Jackie’s view on humanity’s connection with nature is radically different from most. Recognizing that humans are not superior to the rest of life on earth, Jackie shares with us in “Always Looking Up” that the foundation for compassionate living exists in humanity’s deep connection with nature.
