JENNIFER SAHN: THIRTY YEAR PLAN: AN ORION READER

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Tuesday, September 4, 2012 - 10:30am

Orion Magazine is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. To celebrate that milestone, the magazine invited thirty writers from different backgrounds to write about what people are going to need to do and think to create positive change in the next thirty years. The results are published in a new book, an Orion Reader titled THIRTY-YEAR PLAN: THIRTY WRITERS ON WHAT WE NEED TO BUILD A BETTER FUTURE. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with the Editor of Orion Magazine and the Editor of this fascinating compendium, JENNIFER SAHN.  This amazing project  includes pieces by Diane Ackerman, Pete Seeger, Richard Louv , Marc Bekoff, Yvon Chouinard, Ginger Strand and many more. The topics vary greatly, from the future of farming to new ways of thinking about the economy, food, nature and ourselves. To learn more about the book THIRTY YEAR PLAN, which is being used in a number of classrooms, and to read excerpts, go to: http://www.orionmagazine.org/index.php/mag/6931
