Join us for a very special Sherb Talk evening with Hilaree Nelson. Hilaree's talk, "Daring Greatly", will include a mix of photos and video and will include how she got started in the world of mountaineering, with a focus on the ski descent of Lhotse this last fall. Her talk will be dedicated to the discussion behind the trials and tribulations of failure, raising kids, passion as a compass.
Ouray County, Colorado, a popular tourist destination, has dramatic mountains and amazing winter ice climbing. Challenging terrain and high altitude can push visitors to their limits and beyond. deaths from unforeseeable accidents, at altitude, can occur in bad weather or areas that make helicopter rescue impossible or extremely dangerous. For five decades the Ouray Mountain Rescue Team has helped those in trouble in this unique place. as journalist Roger Anderson wrote: "the San Juans, for all their seemingly benign majesty, can be as unforgiving as they are beautiful."
Justice is a term we commonly use and is one of the most important concepts in any social order. Yet inasmuch as our definitions of justice differ, we find ourselves on different sides of important discussions. This talk will examine the way three prominent rival theories of justice work, and how they lead to importantly different outcomes in public policy.
The degree of a person’s involvement varies. Some donate money. Others get their hands dirty with volunteer work or contribute by teaching. All return home touched.
