The speaker will be John Knox, Executive Director Emeritus, Earth Island Institute. Earth Island was founded in 1982 by legendary environmentalist David Brower. For more than three decades, Earth Island has been the organizational home to more than 200 grassroots environmental action projects and currently has a vibrant network of more than 75 projects.
They provide comprehensive fiscal sponsorship and project support to a vibrant network of activists and social entrepreneurs. In the tradition of their founder David Brower, they recognize and support the next generation of young leaders, and inspire people to get involved and take action.
Their New Leaders Initiative mentors young people and sponsors the annual Brower Youth Awards to recognize tomorrow's environmental leaders. They publish the award-winning Earth Island Journal to inspire and educate, and their new Earth Island Advocates program utilizes legal strategies to stand up for wild places, wildlife, and our hard-won environmental protection laws.
