San Francisco Green Festival


An amazing event. GreenFestivals.org

First up, a party hosted by Grist.org where I got to hobnob with some fabulous greenies like David Roberts who then went and wrote nice things about everyone, including me gristmill.grist.org/story/2006/11/13/135029/18

Then onward to the Festival itself… Not exactly a trade fair, although there were hundreds of organic and green manufacturers showing their wares. Not really a series of talks, although some of the most progessive green thinkers were there sharing their thoughts and visions.

Definitely a place to meet folk and be inspired by the strength of the eco-conscious community. To remember just how diverse and powerful we are, how varied our approaches can be, and how urgent our message is.

There were some inspiring speakers. Ones that come to mind are:

Amy Goodman from DemocracyNow.org
Joan Blades from MoveOn.org
Alisa Gravitz from CoopAmerica.org
Paul Stamets from Fungi.com
Hunter Lovins from NatCapInc.com

The other peeps I met that got me most were:

Mitra from ZelfoAustralia.com
Eric from SierraClub.org
Gregory and Nina from TheCoffeeBook.com
Thomas InventingSolutions.org
Daniel from BreakingOpenTheHead.com
and last but not least
