Event Description

Paul Hawken, the visionary, environmentalist, and entrepreneur presents “Commerce, Climate and Community;” an interactive evening at the Lensic. Sponsored by the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce, this presentation features special questions crowd sourced from their Facebook page.

Bill Clinton named Natural Capitalism “one of the five most important books in the world”. Now Santa Feans and friends will get to experience visionary, environmentalist and entrepreneur, Paul Hawken, live at the Lensic on October 8th. A special crowd-sourced “Ask Paul Anything” Facebook campaign is underway – spearheaded by the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce (SFGCC).  “Members of our community can post their burning question for Paul on Santa Fe Green Chamber’s Facebook page and it may be selected for his presentation. How relevant is that?” says Board Chair, Carolyn Parrs. “Having the opportunity to address him directly though social media gives all of us a chance to connect with one of the greatest minds of our time.”

Hawken’s presentation, “Commerce, Climate & Community: An Interactive Evening with Paul Hawken”, will take place at the Lensic Theatre, 211 West San Francisco Street, on October 8th at 7:00pm. It is sponsored by the Santa Fe Green Chamber of Commerce, a chapter of the NM Green Chamber of Commerce. This is the second largest business organization in the state with over 1100 members.

Paul Hawken has written seven books published in over 50 countries in 28 languages including four national bestsellers, The Next Economy, Growing a Business, and The Ecology of Commerce, and Blessed Unrest. He has appeared on numerous media including the Today Show, Larry King, Talk of the Nation, Charlie Rose, and been profiled in articles including the Wall Street Journal,
Newsweek, Washington Post, Business Week, and Esquire. His writings have appeared in the Harvard Business Review, Resurgence, New Statesman, Inc., Boston Globe, Christian Science Monitor, Mother Jones, Utne Reader, Orion, and other publications. He founded several companies including the first food company in the U.S. that relied solely on sustainable agricultural methods.

According to Glenn Schiffbauer, Executive Director of the SFGCC, “Paul Hawken’s emphasis has always been on sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. His presentation will address what small business and individuals can do in this critical time.”
