ENVISION THIS: Nurturing lively curiosity about how things interrelate to enhance life is the most effective antidote to fear and despair

Frances Moore Lappe changed the diet of millions for the sake of our “Small Planet.”  Now her mission in her new book EcoMind is to change the world by changing the way we thinkShe shows us how lively curiosity about how everything interrelates is our best antidote to fear and despair.

The head of Small Planet Institute shows us how cultivating an EcoMind  can help us make seven world changing “mind leaps,” including “Sure, we can be selfish, fixated on material gain, and narrowly competitive.  But here’s the key to our future.  We’ve also evolved deep capacities for cooperation, empathy, fairness, efficacy, meaning, and creativity.  We can’t change human nature, but that’s OK.  We can change the norms and rules of our societies to keep negative human potential in check and to elicit these powerful, positive qualities we most need now.  Let’s focus there with laser intensity.”

 

Join us as Frances Moore Lappe helps us reframe our response to our environmental and economic crises in ways that align with nature, including our own, to create a liberating ecology of hope.
