Our Environmental Destiny with Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Wednesday, November 9, 2011 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will discuss the role that natural resources play in our work, our health, and our identity as Americans. A world-renowned environmentalist and humanitarian, Mr. Kennedy will remind us that we have a social responsibility to protect and preserve our planet for future generations. More than an advocate for the environment, Kennedy is an architect and agent of change. From solar energy to wind power and more, he shows how it is truly possible to become energy independent while making the world a better place.
Mr. Kennedy exemplifies the mission of the Lillian Carter Center. He has dedicated his life to social responsibility as an environmentalist and humanitarian. He was named one of TIME magazine’s “Heroes for the Planet” and one of Rolling Stone’s “100 Agents of Change.” He has published a number of articles related to the environment and its impact on health. Among Mr. Kennedy's published books are the New York Times bestseller Crimes Against Nature (2004); The Riverkeepers (1997); and Judge Frank M. Johnson Jr: A Biography (1977).
2011 marks the 10-year anniversary of the Lillian Carter Center for Global Health & Social Responsibility (formerly the Lillian Carter Center for International Nursing ), which was dedicated by President Jimmy Carter on October 15, 2001. Named in honor of President Carter’s mother, Miss Lillian, the Lillian Carter Center has improved the health of vulnerable populations worldwide through nursing education, practice, research, and policy.
