Prof. Karen Litfin, "Ecovillages Around the World"

I’ll be in SD next week to show beautiful slides and speak about my new book, Ecovillages: Lessons for Sustainable Community: http://ecovillagebook.org/

After 20 years of teaching global environmental politics at the University of Washington & watching planetary conditions go from bad to worse, I traveled around the world to find ways of living that could work for the long haul. Here's what Joanna Macy says about the book: "If you can't take a year off to visit ecovillages around the world, this marvel of a book is the next best thing. It’s actually even better for the carbon it saves, the questions it asks, and the wisdom it shares. Karen Litfin’s journey enlivens our understanding of the Great Turning. I am eager to share it with all my students and fellow teachers." 

Please come & let your friends know. I promise you'll find it both informational & inspirational!

    If anyone were driving from Vista/Oceanside area, I'd ride along and contribute to gas, but my night time driving vision is not the best.

      Hi James - Yes, that would be terrific! This event has been very hastily organized & we have a 300-seat theatre to fill. I'm grateful for any help with publicity!
