Solutions for A Healthier Planet
Sunday, February 21st 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm Room: Plaza Ballroom
Air, Water, Wind, Soil, Trees…the elements of our Mother Earth that create exquisite abundant life. How do we care for, heal, honor and celebrate all of life? This thought provoking panel will bring together environmental visionaries who are ambassadors of the elements and have the purposeful healing solutions. The Scientist, the Cosmological Poet, the voice for the Rain Forest, the Trees, the Water and for the Indigenous Peoples, bring urgency and action steps for sustainable living. These advocates for environmental responsibility inspire us, inform us and will take us on a journey to a wise way of “being” on Earth. Let’s take a stand for life itself, dream a more sustainable dream and act on our inner call for protecting our precious resources and biodiversity. As His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama and Pope Francis both have commented, “It’s up to us!”
