Finger Lakes Bioneers Presents: An Ecology of Mind
Saturday, April 28, 1-4 pm, Cinemapolis, 120 E Green St, Ithaca

Part of the international tour by director Nora Bateson will introduce her new documentary An Ecology of Mind to the local community. The 60-minute film presents a richly engaging profile of the very relevant ideas and spirited outlook of her father Gregory Bateson — an influential figure in a number of arenas of thought and applied research related to systems thinking. The afternoon event will include Nora and other panel members in a stimulating exploration of themes related to systems thinking, biomimicry, indigenous wisdom, and the interwoven economic, political, and environmental problems we face. Panelists include Derek Cabrera of ThinkWorks and Dana Levy of NYSERDA’s Industrial Research Program.
Thanks go out to NYSERDA, Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, andSustainability at Ithaca College for support of the programming. Visitwww.wemakeourfuture.org for details. Tickets available at the door (discounts for ST members).
