Community Connection With Liz Saint John 02.16.2014

Liz Saint John interviews three guests every Sunday morning covering a variety of issues and topics. She talks with representatives from Bay Area non-profit organizations, documentary filmmakers, authors, and professors.

1. Ruth Ozeki, an award-winning writer, filmmaker, and Zen Buddhist Priest, talks about her new novel A Tale for the Time Being, a story that links a person in California to a person in Japan through the tragedy of an earthquake and tsunami.

2.UC Berkeley-trained architect Emily Pilloton explains why she left a traditional design job to start Studio H, an in-school design/build class for 8th-11th grade students. First launched in Bertie County, NC and now based at Realm Charter School in Berkeley, Studio H students apply their core subject learning to design and build audacious and socially transformative projects.

3. Jamie Henn, Communication Director and Co-founder of 350.org, explains how they consider themselves a world-wide movement, rather than an organization, trying to¬† solve climate change through online campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass public actions. They’re active in 188 countries. They’re currently fighting the Keystone XL Pipeline and fracking, and have started a fossil fuel divestment campaign.
