Eco Schools: Educating for Sustainable Communities FRITJOF CAPRA, CHERYL CHARLES, and DAVID ORR June 5, 2015 | 9:30 am
"Alfred North Whitehead, in what is a classic of educational literature, described the goal of education is to help young people fall in love with the world. In our case it’s fall in love with the natural world. And that’s not something that happens from as he called it third-handed book learning. It happens in direct contact with the world."

For thousands of years, First Peoples have successfully managed the complex reciprocal relationships between biological and human cultures using Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK). Yet no prior human civilization has ever faced the globalized ecological collapse occurring now. In the face of unprecedented pressures on their homelands and ways of life, indigenous leaders Enei Begaye, Dune Lankard and Hawk Rosales are organizing in new ways to protect the environment-and spread their knowledge for the sake of all life on Earth and future generations.
The Green-Collar Economy: Jobs, Justice and Prosperity VAN JONES and MAJORA CARTER June 19, 2015 | 9:30 am
The next economy that’s now emerging is a restoration economy. It’s founded in restoring the ecosystems whose life-support services nature provides for free, like clean air and water, pollination and healthy soil. It’s also founded in job-creation – putting people to work on the mammoth endeavor of restoring the health of both lands and communities.
Beyond the Vagina Monologues EVE ENSLER June 26, 2015 | 9:30 am
"If I have learned anything in these past 15 years, it is how to hold two opposite thoughts at the same time. The most radical play I’d ever written turned out to be the play that was accepted and invited into the mainstream. Saying the word I was not supposed to say is the thing that gave me a voice in the world. Revealing the very personal stories of women and their private parts gave birth to a public, global movement to end violence against women and girls."
Fair Food: Ending Slavery in the Fields LUCAS BENITEZ July 3, 2015 | 9:30 am
"Today, we hear very much about the movement for sustainable food. It’s a tremendous vision that can and will work. But where are the human rights of the farm workers who harvest these products and also the small farmers who are suffering these conditions?"
Business for the Common Good: Building Local Living Economies in the Age of Climate Change JUDY WICKS July 10, 2015 | 9:30 am
"Our power comes from protecting what we love – love of place, love of life, people, animals, nature, all of life on this beautiful planet Earth. And I would say for the entrepreneurs amongst us, it also is about our love of business. Business has been corrupted as an instrument of greed rather than one of service to the common good, yet we know that business is beautiful when we put our creativity and care into producing a product or service that our community really needs."
Story of Stuff ANNIE LEONARD July 17, 2015 | 9:30 am
"There are three problems: we’re trashing the planet; we’re trashing each other; and we’re not even having fun. I think that people know in their guts that we are deeply on the wrong path in society and that’s why I think the moment is so ripe for change."
Just Like a Woman: Nature, Chemicals and the Feminization of Science CHARLOTTE BRODY July 24, 2015 | 9:30 am
"This is about how chemicals are trespassing into our bodies, and how our health, our ability to learn, our ability to have healthy babies is being violated without our permission, and without the chemical industry being held accountable for the harm they are creating in fish, in frogs and in us. I am talking about the need to restore the feminine, and about the science that is suggesting that if we want to protect the planet, all of the planet, we focus on what we need to do to protect 12 year-old girls."
Wounds To Warriors: In the Wound Lies the Gift July 31, 2015 | 9:30 am
Warrior: the very word is a double edged sword. It can signify a heroic fighter for deeply held values. Or it can glorify the horrors of war and violence. Can it also mean something else? With Aqeela Sherrills, Ed Tick and Eve Ensler.
Climbing Mt. Sustainability: Doing Well by Doing Good in the New Ecology of Business August 7, 2015 | 9:30 am
"We expect by the year 2020 to operate our petro-intensive company in such a way as to take from the Earth only that which the Earth can renew rapidly and naturally. Not another fresh drop of oil, and to do no harm to the biosphere. Zero footprint by 2020 – mission zero." With Ray Anderson.
