ADVISORY POSTS AND BOARDS

In 2006 Frances was chosen as a founding councilor of the 50-member, Hamburg-based World Future Council.

Frances is on the board of David Korten’s People-Centered Development Forum and serves on the advisory boards of the Union of Concerned Scientists, the Chez Panisse Foundation, and Earth Corps.

In 2011, Frances joined the advisory board of the television series, Kiss the Cook and the Farmer Too. The 13-part series illustrates that​: "We are what we eat and the ways in which we produce, prepare, and consume food not only  affect our personal health and well being but also the health of our environment and our communities."

In 2013, Frances was invited by the King of Bhutan to serve on the International Working Group for a New Development Paradigm. She contributed to Bhutan’s Happiness: Towards a New Development Paradigm, submitted to the UN in December of 2013 laying out a pathway to a sustainable development paradigm to ensure planetary wellbeing.
