After the Earthquake

After the Earthquake

By   |  Jun. 1, 2015

After the devastating 8.0 earthquake in Szechuan, China in 2008, Sheri Liao determined that rebuilding should happen in ecologically-sustainable ways — and committed herself to village life in order to help bring it about. She describes her vision for communities that thrive in broadly ecological ways as, “Loho communities.”  This 4 minute film highlights some of her work.

Liao is one of the key plenary speakers at the SEIZING AN ALTERNATIVE conference on the Pomona College campus in Claremont, CA June 4-7. She joins Bill McKibben, Vandana Shiva, John B. Cobb, Jr., Wes Jackson, Herman Daly, and many others devoted to the task of rethinking civilization from the ground up.  

Liao’s plenary session is free and open to the public:  Saturday, June 6, 7:00 p.m., Bridges Auditorium, Pomona College, Claremont, CA.  

Members of the Pando writing team include Rich Binell, Alexi Caracotsios, Amy Goldberg, Rebecca Schmitt, and Eugene Shirley.
