Paul Hawken, Space of Love Advocate

This fabulous article titled, You are Brilliant and the Earth is Hiring, is one of many contained in the newly released SOL issue.

The Commencement Address by Paul Hawken to the Class of 2009, University of Portland.

"When I was invited to give this speech, I was asked if I could give a simple short talk that was 'direct, naked, taut, honest, passionate, lean, shivering, startling, and graceful.' No pressure there. Let’s begin with the startling part. Class of 2009: you are going to have to figure out what it means to be a human being on earth at a time when every living system is declining, and the rate of decline is accelerating. Kind of a mindboggling situation... but not one peerreviewed paper published in the last thirty years can refute that statement. Basically, civilization needs a new operating system, you are the programmers, and we need it within a few decades..."
