RenewableEnergyStocks.com (RES), an investor and industry news portal for the renewable energy sector, announces that Paul Hawken – environmentalist, entrepreneur, journalist, and best-selling author – has joined the list of presenters to be featured at the “Bioneers by the Bay: Connecting for Change” Conference, to be held at UMASS Dartmouth, from October 14-16th. Hawken will open the “Bioneers by the Bay: Connecting for Change” Conference [the 2005 northeast regional Beaming Bioneers satellite event] on the morning of October 14th.
Hawken is an environmentalist, entrepreneur, journalist, best-selling author, and a proponent of corporate reform with respect to ecological practices. He is author and co-author of dozens of articles as well as six books including The Next Economy, Growing a Business, and the best-selling The Ecology of Commerce. His latest book, Natural Capitalism: Creating the Next Industrial Revolution [with Amory Lovins] has been referred to by several heads of state including President Bill Clinton, who called it one of the five most important books in the world today. Hawken has founded or co-founded several companies including Groxis, Smith & Hawken, and several of the first natural food companies in the U.S that relied solely on sustainable agricultural methods.
Hawken also founded and directs the Natural Capital Institute, a research group dedicated to researching principles and practices leading to social justice and environmental restoration. NCI is currently developing two databases, Sustainable Civil Society [a world-wide catalogue of individuals and organizations dedicated to healing the planet] and ResponsibleInvesting.org [a public database containing complete equity holdings and screening categories of SRI mutual funds in the US and Canada].
Other featured presenters include Anna Lappé, Gunter Pauli, Juliet Schor, Jim Kunstler, John Cronin, Peter Forbes, Jonathan Todd, Susan Witt, John Lash, John Holdren, Roger Payne & Lisa Harrow and Dennis Whittle & Mari Kuraishi. Topics will include renewable energy systems, new paradigms in business, native ecology, healthy food, brownfields, youth leadership, holistic health, sustainable communities, smart growth and more. We are also hoping to bring environmentalist icon Julia Butterfly Hill.
