Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money: Reclaiming the Wealth of Our Inner Resources
For more than 40 years, Lynne Twist has been a recognized global visionary committed to alleviating poverty and hunger, supporting social justice, and promoting environmental sustainability. From working with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, to serving in the refugee camps in Ethiopia, and helping save the threatened rainforests of the Amazon, Twist’s on-the-ground work has brought her a deep understanding of the social tapestry of the world and the historical landscape of the times we live in. Her best-selling book, The Soul of Money: Reclaiming the Wealth of Our Inner Resources (W.W. Norton & Co.), shows us that examining our attitudes toward money—earning it, spending it, and giving it away—can offer surprising insight into our lives, our values, and the essence of prosperity.
Annie Leonard, Executive Director of Greenpeace USA and filmmaker, The Story of Stuff
Leonard began her career at Greenpeace in 1988 and returned to help the organization inspire and mobilize millions of people to take action to create a more sustainable future together. Leonard has over two decades of experience investigating and explaining the environmental and social impacts of our stuff: where it comes from, how it gets to us, and where it goes after we get rid of it. Her film, The Story of Stuff, blossomed into The Story of Stuff Project, which works to empower people around the globe to fight for a more sustainable and just future. The project has built a community of over half a million people and released 8 more videos since The Story of Stuff, which have been viewed over 40 million times and been incorporated into countless school and faith curricula. In 2010, Simon & Schuster published Leonard’s New York Times bestselling book, The Story of Stuff, which takes a deeper dive into the issues of the film.
