The 21st century has woken us up to the reality that our planet of infinite riches is in fact finite and vulnerable. Natural gas, water, minerals, forests, fish, the very air we breathe – all are subject to the vagaries of human desires and government policy.  We urgently need dialogue on every aspect of maximizing our limited resources, including how gender factors in, the role of corporations, and traditional vs. modern management systems.
