Carl Honore is the godfather of the Slow Revolution. In 2004 Honore published highly acclaimed book 'In Praise of Slow.' It's a book that examines the often striking consequences of living in a high speed culture seemingly while heralding in a growing international movement dedicated to slowing down the pace of our lives.
This episode of the CJSR Edition presents a keynote address given by Honore entitled 'Children's play, Community Recreation and the Public Good.' The presentation, examining what effects our speed obsessed culture has on children, was delivered at the University of Alberta on September 21st.
In the second part of the program, CJSR sits down with Honore for a feature length interview where the acclaimed author gives insight into his experiences with the Slow Movement and explains what it's like to be the godfather of a growing movement to live a less hasty life.
