On Friday, November 11th at 6:30 pm, four influential national and local sustainability leaders will gather at Cabrillo College’s Crocker Theater for a one-time only speaking event. Led by revolutionary activist Frances Moore Lappé, the discussion will center around her newly released book EcoMind, addressing issues like making real food a human right, restoring the earth, and achieving peace through true democracy.

Anthropologist Jane Goodall calls Ecomind "Powerful and inspiring, Ecomind will open your eyes and change your thinking. I want everyone to read it."

Co-sponsored by UCSC Sustainability Office and Cabrillo College Sustainability Council, the event will both enlighten and motivate attendees with real solutions to pressing issues. Lappé will appear with local author John Robbins, known globally for popularizing the links among nutrition, environmentalism and animal rights, Dr. Wallace J. Nichols, ocean scientist, author, advocate and founder of BLUEMiND, and Michael Levy, founder of Transition Santa Cruz. At a time when we need it most, these four thought leaders will engage the audience through ideas and solutions to local and global food, environmental and poverty issues.
