At a time of soaring corporate profits and plenty of HR lip service about "wellness," millions of workers – in virtually every industry – are deeply unhappy. Why did work become so miserable? Who is responsible? Dan Lyons’s Lab Rats: How Silicon Valley Made Work Miserable for the Rest of Us (Hachette) is a groundbreaking examination of how the half-baked ideas of Silicon Valley and its "new oligarchs" have changed the way we work, damaged our brains, and left us poorer and insecure.

Nov 29 Thu
Hosted by Oregon Wild.

Did you know that logging is Oregon’s #1 source of carbon emissions? Join us on Thursday, November 29, for an insightful discussion about the relationship between the climate and our forests.


At our forum, we’ll be hearing from experts about how healthy forests capture and store carbon, how industrial logging emits it, and how we can make our native ecosystems more resilient to the impacts of climate change. We’ll also highlight a few ways you can take action on this important issue. 

There will be a happy hour before the event with free beer/wine/snacks donated by local businesses, and several organizations from around the area will have tables set up. 

This event is part of a series of educational forums around the state about how our forests can help fight climate change. The “Forest Defense is Climate Defense” tour will also be making stops in Corvallis, Eugene, Portland, Newport, Medford, and other communities around Oregon.
