People’s Free University

A few possibilities as a starting point for thinking about what kinds of teach-ins, discussions, or presentations you might want to host. Let me know what else you’d like to see added to the list and which ones should be done first:

  • Air quality & health in the LV [especially asthma]
  • Consensus process [Ken]
  • Corporate personhood
  • Democratic education – building a learning community
  • Fair Trade – does it really matter?
  • Food deserts, healthy food for all
  • Food for health – sustainable growing v. food from factory farms
  • Fracking & natural gas drilling basics
  • Global warming and reducing greenhouse gas emissions [GHG]
  • Holistic health – overview of different approaches
  • Justice – the criminal justice system
  • Nonviolence training
  • PA community rights network (√ Nov.15)
  • Privatization of the commons
  • Sustainability in business
  • Yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, etc.

Note that these can be by professors, specialists from non-profit organizations, and other knowledgeable individuals—in some cases, college students may be the most effective.  I’ll be happy to help find people on any of these or related subjects.
