The 2014 Community Events Series will soon be underway! This diverse series of free and low-cost programs will focus around the theme of the 27th annual Camden Conference: The Global Politics of Food and Water, February 21-23, 2014.
The Camden Conference is a non-profit, non-partisan organization staffed by volunteers. Sponsorship of events by the Camden Conference in no way implies support for any position taken by speakers. Thank you to our Community Partners for helping us to make these events possible!

Join a discussion group on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 am to 11:30 am for some free-wheeling conversation covering a multitude of topics. Every 4th Tuesday, Peter Muth joins facilitator Bill Newman for a discussion of globalization.
This ongoing discussion group has continued to thrive for four years. A core group of a dozen or so sometimes swells to eighteen or more individuals who drop in for some free-wheeling conversation covering a multitude of topics. Politics, government, public policy, and current events are usually the focus. Open at no cost to CSC members. New members welcome.
Facilitator William Newman holds a BA from Brooklyn College and an MLS from Columbia University. He continued graduate study in philosophy and history at the New School for Social Research and at Cornell University. Before retiring, Bill was a librarian at various universities in the U.S. and Canada. He has taught many courses for CSC in film, literature, philosophy, and history.
The group meets at the St. Bernard’s Catholic Church at 105 Broadway in Rockland.

Environmental lawyer Sharon Tisher will present a slide talk on “Climate Reality: Connecting the dots between extreme weather and global warming” at the library on Tuesday evening, June 4, at 7:00 pm.
Tisher teaches environmental law and energy policy courses in the School of Economics and Ecology and Environmental Sciences Program at the University of Maine. She was recently trained by Al Gore to give the current version of his Nobel Prize-winning slide show on climate change. Through remarkable photographs, instructional animations, and film, the show explores the connections between global warming and extreme weather events, including severe storms, droughts, and wildfires.
