Wednesday, August 9 - NOON
Mark Decena -- Director of Not Without Us (PBS)

If National Governments cant solve the climate crisis, then who will? Not Without Us follows seven grassroots activists from around the world to the 21st U.N. Climate Talks in Paris. The effects of climate change on their lives reveal whats at stake if a strong agreement to limit carbon emissions is not reached. Yet, the landmark Paris Accords, signed by 192 nations, is nonbinding and fails to mention the main cause of global climate change: fossil fuels. How could this be?

Not Without Us connects the dots. Between the inability of the U.N. process to address climate change and Big Oils control over governments. Between the greatest economic inequality in the history of mankind and the oncoming climate disaster. Between a fossil fuel-driven economy and the 1% who control it.

Not Without Us demonstrates the importance of grassroots groups to empower mass movements to create the systemic change we need. Real change that comes not from top-down, but the bottom up, organized by social movements to harness the greatest force we have: humanity.


Wednesday, August 23 - NOON
Scott Hartley --  The Fuzzy and the Techie: Why the Liberal Arts Will Rule the Digital World

A contrarian perspective from a leading venture capitalist who contends that the future of advanced technological breakthroughs will come from college graduates who majored in the social sciences and humanities (the Fuzzies) as opposed to the more hardcore science concentrators (the Techies). Based on the author's extensive experience in evaluating and funding start-up companies, the book will feature dozens of timely case studies that will prove his point and will also be of great reassurance to liberal arts majors.

Scott Hartley is a venture capitalist, has been an investment partner on Sand Hill Road, a Presidential Innovation Fellow at the White House, and worked at Google, Facebook, and Harvards Berkman Center.

A Bay Area native, he moved to Palo Alto in 1993, where he attended elementary (Nixon), middle (Jordan), high school (Paly), and Stanford University.
