Christy Delafield (left), of Mercy Corps, who was in Turkey earlier this year, will report first-hand on the situation on the ground of refugees to Steve and Lew.

This Spaceship Earth - A Call to Action for the Final Episode of Renaissance SRQ

For the last 2 years, Renaissance SRQ has offered you discussions on how to achieve a greater sense of Sustainability, Resilience, and Quality of Life. As this show comes to a close, we are glad to leave you with a challenge by revisiting some guests from the show last year. Now that futurist David Houle and planetary ethicist Tim Rumage have released their book This Spaceship Earth, we would like to offer a call to action for all people to become crew members rather than passengers.
