What happens when Frances' book Eco-Mind is used in a classroom?
“I fortuitously assigned Eco-Mind excerpts for reading on Tuesday November 6, 2018 so we talked about democracy and stewardship on election day! The students SO appreciated your perspective. First, one person said - “I’m an environmental science student and I’ve been getting pretty depressed about the planet. This was so refreshingly positive.” Then another person said, “Yes, but what made it so effectively positive is that it was also critical.” Then a third student said, “You know, it made me really hopeful … but it also made me really angry. How can I be 22 and nobody ever told me about these incredible things that people have accomplished! I’m not going to let that happen to anybody else!”
-- Liz Carlisle, Lecturer at Stanford University
In her speech at Boston College, Frances explores the question that’s motivated her life: Why are we, such a bright species, creating together a world none of us alone would choose?
