Lessons for a Small Planet | Part 1
An intimate mother-daughter conversation with Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé
February 10, 2022 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am PST
The Global Conservation Program at Biodiversity Funders Group (BFG) and the Panta Rhea Foundation would like to invite you to join us for a very special two-part dialogue for grantmakers on conservation, climate, and food systems.
In this intimate “fireside chat,” author and funder Anna Lappé will host an engaging conversation with her mother, Frances Moore Lappé, whose book, Diet for a Small Planet, has sold more than 3.5 million copies since it was first published in 1971 and sparked a revolution in how people reflect on the connections between food, health, and the environment. Now, a half-century later, Frances and Anna are celebrating the book’s 50th anniversary and together exploring what we have learned across five decades of activism for a more just and healthy planet. Anna will take us on a journey with her mother, probing big questions about how we can find hope in this dark time, human nature and democracy, and what have we learned about how to make lasting systems change at the intersections of agriculture, biodiversity, and the climate crisis.
