Paul Hawken Lecture!
Wednesday, June 20. 8:00 p.m. Kepler’s. 1010 El Camino Real, Menlo Park
Paul Hawken, one of the world’s most influential environmentalists, reveals a worldwide grassroots movement of hope and humanity. His book, Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Movement in the World Came into Being and Why No One Saw It Coming, tells the story of a worldwide movement that is largely unseen by politicians or the media. This is a movement that has no name, leader, or location, but is organizing from the bottom up and emerging as an extraordinary and creative expression of people’s needs worldwide. Blessed Unrest is a description of humanity’s collective genius and the unstoppable movement to re-imagine our relationship to the environment and one another.
