FRIDAY 2 MAY 2008
6:30 – 8 PM • I-101 A/B
San Diego Miramar College
EVENING WITH THE EXPERTS presents
Ellen Augustine, author, speaker and activist
” Building the Green Dream:
How You can Bring Sustainable Practices Into Any Career”
The U.N. Climate Change Commission reports we have ten to 15 years to make significant changes before we bring irreversible harm to the planet. Discover how you can be part of the solution.
Today’s students and public at large want both financially rewarding and meaningful work – and that this is possible more than ever before. With potential disasters looming on the horizon, many people in both traditional and newly emerging fields are shifting the playing field. The new playbook says that competition is no longer the only way to win, that natural processes are trumping technological ones, and that local businesses are outsmarting global corporations.
Augustine will share profiles of people who are equally considering their employees, the community, and the planet, and are finding their profits grow. She’ll share lots of tips on how to connect with such companies, and green whatever field you are interested in.
Ellen Augustine is co-author of Taking Back Our Lives in the Age of Corporate Dominance, contributing author to A Game As Old As Empire: The Secret World of Economic Hit Men and the Web of Global Corruption. She ran for U.S. Congress and founded/co-founded four nonprofits. Augustine has been featured in Utne Reader and Hope Magazine, received the Women of Achievement and Thread of Hope Awards, and was named one of 21 Visionaries for the 21st Century.
“Building the Green Dream” is offered through the college’s Evening with the Experts lecture and performance series. Presentations are free, no reservations are necessary and no parking permits are required on Friday evenings.
