We’ve all heard of capital. It’s king, right? Plus, there’s venture capital: wealth that creates new businesses. Human capital? Yep, we know that by the sweat on our brow.
And then there’s natural capital. Ever heard of it? Paddy Woodworth, author of Our “Once and Future Planet,” will come to Oak Park to help us understand the concept of restoring natural capital and how this idea is transforming the way the world values and uses nature.
Here’s a preview, but please come see him speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10, at First United Church of Oak Park (848 Lake Street, next to the Oak Park Public Library). This West Cook Wild Ones meeting is free and open to the public.
As a long-time environmental journalist and author, the aptly named Woodworth has traveled internationally to discover amazing projects and meet leading movers and shakers. His talk next Tuesday promises to be a lively, wide-ranging discussion.
