--

Dr. John Francis is a celebrated author and environmental steward. His autobiography, Planetwalker, is based on the 22 years that he went without using motorized transportation and the 17 years he went without speaking. His non-profit organization Planetwalk sponsors walks nationally and internationally to promote environmental education and responsibility. Planetwalk is modeled on Dr. John Francis’s worldwide pilgrimage that works to transcend cultural, social and political boundaries by fostering communication between young people, scientists and environmental practitioners.
