“Together, we are a genius.” – Lynne Twist
Additional information on Lynne Twist:
Lynne Twist, global visionary, author, speaker, master fundraiser, human rights advocate and environmental activist is returning to Japan in May 2014 after more than 20 years absence.
Her book, “The Soul of Money,” speaks to the possibility of creating a new relationship with money, life and personal power based on the principle of sufficiency—freedom from the toxic myths of scarcity: ‘there’s not enough for everyone’, ‘more is better’, and ‘that’s just the way it is…there’s nothing we can do about it.’
Lynne raised over 200 million dollars as Chief Fundraising Officer with The Hunger Project, while traveling the world working to end starvation on the planet. Today her collaboration with the Nobel Women’s Initiative supports the movement to end violence against women everywhere. She is a compelling advocate for grass roots organizations and NPOs working towards environmental and social justice and creating a thriving, sustainable human presence on the planet in harmony with the natural world.
The Pachamama Alliance, co-founded by Lynne, her husband Bill Twist, and Jon Perkins, in partnership with the Achuar tribe in Ecuador, defends the rights of indigenous people in the Amazon rainforest, and also strives to awaken people all over the world to the state affairs on our planet, and the pressing need for everyone to become a change agent, to become part of the solution, through realizing how amazingly resource-full we all are in committed community.
