Dr. Kerry Bowman will be speaking at the inaugural TEDxUTIHP event at the University of Toronto on September 17, 2011.
In his talk, Human Well-being is Environmental Well-being, he will share his experiences working around the world as an internationally-respected ethicist and conservationist.
“The assumption that what is good for people is different than what is good for the environment has had negative consequences,” says Dr. Bowman. Through his work, he has seen firsthand how indivisible these two realms are, and on September 17 he will share insights gained over decades, in countries as wide-ranging as Algeria, Suriname, Vietnam, Laos and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (North Korea).
TEDx events are locally organized programs created in the TED spirit of ideas worth spreading. The theme of TEDxUTIHP is The Human Experience: an exploration of the social, environmental and medical issues affecting people around the world and the amazing men and women who are working to address them.
