About this event

Solving the planet’s intractable problems will require global cooperation and generational resolve, yet self-interest and politics are short-term games. We also see this in our personal lives when we reach for quick fixes, mindless consumption and instant gratification — knowing that more permanent solutions are prudent. "The Long View" explores issues of personal and global importance from an expanded perspective.
