I’m appearing at the Secret Garden Party festival, in Cambridgeshire, at 17.00, this Sunday 22nd July 2012, in the Forum tent. My talk will be about:
- Civilisation as an emergent property of Earth’s ecosphere
- The last 1,000 years of homicide, poverty and human-welfare data
- A Gaian perspective on current environmental issues
I’ll be joined on stage by Tom Mansfield – the performance poet commissioned to write the poem for the London 2012 Olympic Village – who will be reading the H. G. Wells passage. I’ll be followed by the League of Pragmatic Optimists.
The website for The Jolly Pilgrim has now been rebuilt and arranged so it can act as a platform for my stuff for the rest of my life.
- Front page
- Synopsis by chapter (I did the funky graphics myself)
- Nice things readers have said about the book
- if you want adding – say something nice!
- Core philosophical positions (with submenu at the bottom)
- Media and press
- If you want write a travel book
Lots of new material will be bolted onto the site over the coming months – much of it about sustainability.
Fun, sun, sea, sand and jugs of Olympic spirit.
