Speaker: Ken Bowers
Ken is educated as a physicist. He is versed in the hard and soft sciences and has taught these and other subjects at the college level. In addition, Ken founded two businesses, in photography/graphics which specialized in journalistic work for activist nonprofits, and in construction focusing on rehab and subdivision of existing structures. Ken has advocated for wider access to health care on the state and national level, and for improved and user friendly public transit at the local level in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Topic: Mainstreaming Micro Housing Options

Description:
America, plus many others following America's example, are awash in magical thinking, perpetuated by advertising and the peer pressure it creates, about more for me being the ultimate goal in life, that things count more than people and the rest of nature, and that the human enterprise can forever "grow" with no adverse consequences.
Mainstreaming micro housing options will help us move from consumerism to stewardship as a way of life as a survival necessity, not to mention a likely improved, less stressful and more fulfilling lifestyle. Ken has lived in micro housing for over 30 years and wouldn't have it any other way.


Historical example - Henry Thoreau's home on Walden Pond
 measured 10' x 15', and in 1846 dollars, cost just $28.12 to build
