No More Heroes | Philip Loring | TEDxUniversityofSaskatchewan

No Comments

We often depend on heroes who solve our problems for us, in the way that they see fit. With the problems that we see around us today, We need a legion of people empowered to work together to solve them. Philip Loring shares in this talk, the transformation many people pursue is not a personal one, about making themselves the hero, but about lifting up others. Philip Loring is a human ecologist with fifteen years experience studying the social and environmental dimensions of food security and community sustainability.

His research focuses primarily on coastal communities, though he has research experience around the world in such diverse locales as Alaska, Mexico, and the Canadian Prairies.

He currently holds the Arrell Chair in Food, Policy, and Society in the Arrell Food Institute and Department of Geography, University of Guelph. He is also adjunct faculty with the School of Environment and Sustainability, University of Saskatchewan.

He has previously served as President of the Arctic Division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, as well as the Alaska Chapter of the American Fisheries Society.

He has written over 40 academic articles, while also being a regular contributor to CBC radio on issues related to climate change and food systems, and is the author of the forthcoming book, “Finding Our Niche.” This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
