The day includes movies, presentations, working groups, small group discussions and networking. Our Keynote Speaker will be Professor George Crowell.
About George Crowell
George Crowell has a B.A. from Princeton University and a Th.D. from Union Theological Seminary in New York City. He taught at Lake Forest College in Illinois, and the College of Wooster in Ohio. In 1968 he moved with his family to Canada to take a position in the Religious Studies Department at the University of Windsor, where he worked in the area of Social Ethics until his retirement in 1996, teaching courses on a wide variety of current social issues, including environmental crises, economic problems, war and violence, and the dynamics of nonviolent action. Only in 1994 did he learn about the incredible power of monetary policy which has enormously damaging impact around the world, but could be transformed to have enormously creative impact. He has been working to raise awareness of our money system ever since, and, as with all the social problems he has dealt with, has striven to dispel misleading propaganda, to reveal hidden realities, and to clarify issues for public understanding and discussion. George has been instrumental in assisting the Federal NDP and Federal Green Party in developing resolutions and policy formats regarding the use of the Bank of Canada to create interest free loans.
