Get to know keynote speaker Frances Moore Lappé of the Small Planet Institute. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Frances Moore LappéSolutions to global crises — such as hunger and climate change — are within reach. However, in order to bring these solutions to life, we must free ourselves from self-defeating ‘thought traps’ that leave us mired in fear, guilt, and despair. Building on the ideas in my new book EcoMind: Changing the Way We Think, to Create the World We Want, I will explain how certain ‘though leaps’ can shift us from a stance of defeatism and fear to one of empowerment and action and will explain how “thinking like an ecosystem” enables us to create new possibilities in our lives, our communities, and our world.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees? 

That hope is a verb. As my daughter Anna and I found while writing Hope’s Edge, “Hope is not what we find in evidence. It is what we become in action.”
