    A Love That is Wild | Terry Tempest Williams

    A Love That is Wild | Terry Tempest Williams

    What might a different kind of power look and feel like, and can power be redistributed equitably, even beyond our own species? Conservationist, activist, and one of the nation’s most beloved and acclaimed authors, Terry Tempest Williams has been called “a citizen writer” who speaks eloquently for an ethical stance toward life, showing how environmental issues are social issues that become matters of justice. A scholar at the University of Utah and Dartmouth, she has been equally at home camping in the wilderness and being arrested for civil disobedience.

    Mishkos Kenomagwen: The Teachings of Grass | Robin Kimmerer

    Mishkos Kenomagwen: The Teachings of Grass | Robin Kimmerer

    Indigenous peoples worldwide honor plants, not only as our sustainers, but as our oldest teachers who share teachings of generosity, creativity, sustainability and joy. By their living examples, plants spur our imaginations of how we might live. By braiding indigenous Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) with modern tools of botanical science, Robin Kimmerer, professor of Environmental Science and Forestry, of Potawatomi ancestry, explores the question: “If plants are our teachers, what are their lessons, and how might we become better students”?

    The Environment and Its Relationship to Equity and the Economy | Mary Gonzales

    The Environment and Its Relationship to Equity and the Economy | Mary Gonzales

    "Environmentalists are tree huggers and people concerned with the extinction of birds. We are not trees or birds." Mary Gonzales, a Mexican-American Chicago native, says this statement might be heard from people of color, poor or working class people, young people or immigrants, yet their immediate life experience and issues they're confronting have everything to do with the environment: transportation, housing, jobs, and education, to name a few. How do we connect? Mary is a legendary community organizer and California Director for Gamaliel Foundation, an international institute building faith-based organizing (and which trained Barack Obama as a community organizer).

    This speech was given at the 2010 Bioneers National Conference.
