(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) December 20, 2010 - Based on the practice of good, effective conversation, in this three session series we'll examine how you can use conversation and community to advance your vision of cultural change. Among other things, we'll explore Jeremy Rifkin's idea of the empathic civilization, the new gross national happiness movement, and ongoing efforts for wealth equality.
The facilitator is Cecile Andrews, author of Less is MoreSlow is Beautiful, and Circle of Simplicity. She has her doctorate in education from Stanford where she teaches in the Stanford Health Improvement Program. She is on the board for Take Back Your Time, is active in Transition Palo Alto and Seattle’s Gross National Happiness Project.

Sponsored by Transition Palo Alto and World Centric   About World Centric 
World Centric products are made with annually renewable resources like corn, sugarcane and wheat straw fiber. Sugar cane and wheat straw fiber are also discarded by-products of the agriculture industry, and it uses this discarded fiber to make sustainable alternatives to plastics and styrofoam.

World Centric is committed to becoming the model of how sustainable enterprises should be run. In 2009, for example, they offset all their carbon emissions and gave 25% of their profits (before taxes) to grass root social and environmental organizations. World Centric hopes to one day give away 100% of their profits. The overall mission, vision and values of World Centric have remained consistent since their founding - to make a difference and create a more just and sustainable world.
