Mitchell's guest today is the remarkable Lynne Twist, who has a distinguished career as a global thought leader, having played significant roles in the development of The Hunger Project, co-founding The Pachamama Alliance and founding The Soul of Money Institute.
For more than 40 years, Lynne Twist has been a recognized global visionary committed to alleviating poverty, ending world hunger and supporting social justice and environmental sustainability.
From working with Mother Teresa in Calcutta to the refugee camps in Ethiopia and the threatened rainforests of the Amazon, as well as guiding the philanthropy of some of the worlds wealthiest families, Lynne’s on-the-ground work has brought her a deep understanding of people’s relationship with money. Her breadth of knowledge and experience has lead her to profound insights about the social tapestry of the world and the historical landscape of the times we are living in.
Lynne was last a guest on A Better World when her book The Soul of Money was published in 2008. Listen here: http://abetterworld.tv/?s=lynne+twist&cat=0.
