The first part of today's show is an interview with Ganen Thurman (Prof. Bob Thurman's son & Uma Thurman's brother) on the rich activity of Tibet House US, here in NYC.

Ganden currently serves as the Executive Director of Tibet House US where he has worked full time for the last 20 years  THUS is a cultural and educational non-profit corporation established in 1987 at the request of HH the Dalai Lama of Tibet.  Mr. Thurman has spent considerable time over the course of his life living amongst and around Tibetan exiles in the US and India and is proud to assist their non-violent campaign for basic human rights and the opportunity to contribute to world civilization and affairs as Tibetans.

The second half of today's show is discussing the Pachamamama Alliance with its former Executive Director, David Tucker.  David has been with the Pachamama Alliance for 17 years and is currently the Director of Pachamama Journeys, an experientially based, transformational travel program that reconnects participants to the Earth, themselves and others through direct experience with wild nature, indigenous cultures and shared group experience.

Prior to joining the Pachamama Alliance, David managed a successful State Senate campaign in Massachusetts, facilitated wilderness experiences for at-risk youth in the dessert Southwest, and was a Peace Corps volunteer in Latin America. He has been bridging the global North and South for over 20 years and is a committed student of indigenous, earth-based wisdom.

A Better World has been an advocate of both Tibet House and the Pachamama Alliance for some years, and is pleased to speak with today's guests who have done and continue to do such good work in supporting and advancing these enterprises.
