Location: Marie Callendar's Restaurant 9503 Research Blvd. Austin, TX 78759
Welcome back from vacation to the first meeting of the Central Texas Chapter of the World Future Society for the fall season.
Al Gore recently published a book titled "The Future: Six Drivers of Global Chang". It is NOT focused on climate change, but on a larger set of future trends and issues that we are facing. To quote from a review:
"Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast"
We originally wanted to do a book review and discussion, but who better to give the book overview than Al Gore himself? We weren't able to obtain Al Gore for the next meeting, but we did obtain a video of him giving an insightful and entertaining overview of his book. We will watch the video during dinner, followed by a lively group discussion afterwards. This should be a fun and relaxing way to start of the new year for our chapter.
