John Knox, Executive Director
Imagine having the vision to create a non-profit, public interest, membership organization that supports people who are creating solutions to protect our shared planet. For over 34 years, this Institute has been a hub for grassroots campaigns dedicated to conserving, preserving and restoring the ecosystems on which our civilization depends. One example is their Project Support program. It acts as an incubator for start-up environmental projects, giving crucial assistance to groups and individuals with new ideas for promoting ecological sustainability. In other words, they support programs that might just help to create healthier, more sustainable futures for all of us. Please join me as I ask John to share the vision of Earth Island Institute and to inform all of us about the myriad of great projects they help bring to life. This show made possible due to the generous support of The Fairfax Companies.
