World Changing Tour is Coming to Denver

Good news to those who have read  Worldchanging: A User’s Guide for the 21st Century book by Alex Steffen and better news for those who haven’t read it and just learned about its existence. I would fall into this latter category.  But the good news is that there is going to be a World Changing Tour coming to Denver on December 14th to our own Tattered Cover in LoDo. I am excited about this as I am eager to find local resources for living a more eco-responsible life and this seems like a terrific place to make some great contacts.  This event is sponsored by TED, which is an event for those creative-types to exchange ideas on Technology, Entertainment and Design. Sounds great. I wonder how you get invited.

Anyway, back to the book. This sounds like a great read for anyone interested in ideas on how you can have a positive impact on conservation and the environment. You can buy a copy on Amazon; there is a bit of a discount.  Or in the spirit of buying locally, you can also buy a copy from Tattered Cover but it looks like it is only available for pre-order. The same for the Boulder Book Store.

I would also suggest spending some time on the worldchanging blog. There is a excerpt on Bill Moyers work The Net@Risk, which is about the revolution of the internet and its vulnerability to corporate and government control. I missed the show but thanks to video I can still watch  it.  I love the work Bill Moyers does; his Healing and the Mind book was an amazing read and I still recommend it to friends even though the book is probably nearly 15 years old.
