With Special Guest Chris Philpott
Speaker, Educator, Activist and Author
Chris’s involvement as educator activist in the green movement goes back 30 years. He is a campaign organizer, a participant in local and national environmental issues as wide ranging as climate change and recycling, as well as an initiator in biodiversity projects with children, local grow-your-own, local exchange trading or LETS, the local Transition Town as well as meditation, inter-faith and green spirituality groups. His research for his book Green Spirituality took 13 years and included visits to the UN’s World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg and a countrywide tour of India where he spent time with 130 spiritual leaders from Hindu, Jain, Sikh, Muslim, Christian and Buddhist traditions whose wise words are woven throughout the book.
