Boundaries and Balance in a Nonstop World

June 10, 2016

In America today, ask someone, “How are you?” and “busy” is a common response. Despite all of the digital devices designed to save time, many people still feel there is never enough. In an age when 24/7 connectivity, productivity, and efficiency often take priority, the boundary blurs between work and non-work, prompting the question, What is rest in our fast-paced, ever-connected world?

Independent scholar Lisa Naas Cook will lead participants in a conversation that explores what rest means to people, whether it’s a basic human right, and how adequate time for rest relates to equitable and sustainable communities.

Free event.
