IPSA's Book Launch of Ecomind by Frances Moore Lappé

What if the ecological crisis were, at heart, a crisis of perception? In her new book, EcoMind, Frances Moore Lappé helps facilitate a much needed shift.

Join the International Public Service Association (IPSA) for a discussion and book launch with Moore Lappé. Engage in the dialogue with the NYU community about developing your own Ecomind. Appetizers and drinks will be served. The event will be followed by a small reception.

The author argues that much of what is wrong with the world, from our eroding soil to our eroding democracies, results from ways of thinking out of synch with human nature and nature’s rhythms. Moore Lappé weaves her analysis together with stories of real people the world over, who, having shifted some basic thought patterns, are shifting the balance of power in our world. She reveals that the gap between the world we long for and the world we thought we were stuck with can be bridged after all--if we can learn to think like an ecosystem. EcoMind shows us the way.
