NVU-Lyndon and the Department of Natural Sciences welcomes Seeds of Hope: Visions of Sustainability, Steps Toward Change,” a 24-panel exhibit created jointly by Earthcharter.org and the Soka Gakkai International (SGI), a lay Buddhist organization from 10/11 through 10/25/21. Since its debut at the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2002, Seeds of Hope has been seen by more than seven million people in 39 different countries and territories, and translated into 14 languages. Its original message has grown in urgency over the past 19 years (the age of a college student!) while humanity has grappled with the challenges of climate change.
Natural Sciences Associate Professor Ian Balcom has teamed with SGI’s Vermont Chapter to offer the exhibit as a vehicle for hope and change. Drawing from case studies in India, Slovakia, and Kenya, “it gives concrete ideas of what one person can do, and provides space for people to pledge what action they will take. Please unite in the decision to hope and act, and JOIN US ON Friday 10/15 at 4 PM in the Alexander Twilight Theater Lobby for our opening mixer and viewing of the powerful film, “A Quiet Revolution.”
