A wise person once told me that sometimes all it takes is a simple shift on how you approach situations to become successful in any venture. Renown author, Frances Moore Lappé’s new book, EcoMind: Changing the Way We Think, to Create the World We Want* illustrates this same point as it pertains to the environmental movement. Please join Karen Lee and me as we interview Lappé on behalf of Green Sisterhood about her theories on Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at 12 PM EST.
Spoiler alert: Her theories may surprise you. However, I believe that you will walk away feeling lighter and so much more hopeful that we can make a difference.
The interview will be live on Green Sisterhood. In the event, you can not join us, the interview can be replayed on the website.
Remember simple shifts.
To Give You a Little Taste:
Lappé believes that our fear-based environmental message has caused hopelessness, despair and powerlessness. I also feel that same despair that my community and friends no longer are interested in the environment. Her book has lifted my spirits immeasurably to help me refocus on how I can help to deliver my message in a more positive fashion. Perhaps you feel the same way I do.
She argues that if we look at our environmental issues differently and view them as opportunities, we will be more successful in meeting our environmental challenges. Lappé weaves stories of hope from around the world and scientific studies of human behavior throughout the book to empower all of us to create a world we want.
The Book is A Must Read for Everyone
This book isn’t just for scientists or activists, but for everyone who wishes a new direction for the their home, community and the Planet. In essence, it is book full of hope that we CAN make a difference simply by viewing our world differently.
Enough said. I don’t want to spoil the interview.
Join us for a spark of hope. And ultimately change. I am excited. I hope you are too.
