Earth Day Soiree

Cost for the event is $25 plus $1.87 for processing. See a flyer for the event here. Purchase online here.
We are learning every day, with increasing urgency, the fateful direction of our Earth's course if we do not change our behavior. And we continue to ask the same question: But what can I possibly do? How can I make a difference?
How can one community,let alone one person...change the course of Global destruction! Our featured speaker at the Earth Day Soiree, Hunter Lovins, believes there needs to be a complete "Regeneration"...a spiritual or moral "rebirth"from our old ways. As a "green business" expert, she will help us understand how everyone, and all things from Oceans to Ice Caps, from forests to farm lands...can benefit from a Regenerative economy.
An internally recognized leader in sustainability, L. Hunter Lovins is President of Natural Capitalism Solutions (NCS) a Colorado non-profit that educates decision makers in the business case for a Regenerative Economy. Having worked in sustainability policy since 1972, Lovins has consulted for scores of industries and governments, including International Finance Corporation, Unilever, Walmart, the United Nations and Royal Dutch Shell, as well as sustainability champions Interface, Patagonia and Clif Bar. She has briefed heads of state, leaders of the numerous local governments, the Pentagon, and about 30 other countries, as well as the UN, and the US Congress. She was instrumental in creating the fields of Economic Renewal, Green Development, and Sustainable Management. She has helped create several MBA schools and is currently professor of Sustainable Business at Bard MBA. She has won dozens of awards, including the European Sustainability Pioneer award, the Right livelihood Award (the alternative Nobel) and the 2012 the Rachel Carson Award. In 2013 she was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the International Society of Sustainability Professionals. Time Magazine recognized her as a Millennium Hero for the Planet, and Newsweek called her the Green Business Icon.
