CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The Center for Academic Ethics and the David W. Wilson Chair in Business Ethics at the University of Northern Iowa are hosting an ongoing series of public forums to explore different hypothetical scenarios, by asking the question "What If…?" The next session will be held at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the Cedar Falls Public Library.

The session, "What If… We Could Create an Abundance Economy?" focuses on examining various perspectives about the economy and the environment, and envisioning what would result from acting, creating and rewarding abundance instead of concentrating on scarcity.  How would this affect our future as a society?  Would it result, among other things, in a smaller environmental footprint? 

The session will feature presentations from Catherine Zeman and Mark Herman.  Zeman is a professor of kinesiology at the School of Allied Health and Human Services and director of the recycling and reuse technology transfer center at UNI.  Herman is a green manufacturing consultant and field representative.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Craig VanSandt, UNI Business Ethics Chair, at 319-273-6194 or
