Gaia Vince’s Nomad Century describes how climate change and global warming will force massive migrations of people to northern latitudes. Packed with a sobering array of facts, the book nonetheless offers a proactive positive perspective on these demographic disruptions. They could be used to address multiple impending social challenges, from workforce distribution to food production to lifestyle sustainability. This class will provide an opportunity for participants to share their views on these potential scenarios.

After a career as a journalist and newsmagazine editor, Steve Hopkins became director of publications at Clarkson University and an adjunct professor. His interest in social issues continues in retirement.

Special Instructions: Participants must read the book "Nomad Century."
