Dune Lankard to speak in Halifax, Saturday October 23, 2010

HALIFAX, Aug. 26 /CNW/ - Dune was a commercial fisherman in Prince William Sound until March 24, 1989 when the Exxon Valdez spilled more than 30 million gallons of oil into the Sound. On that day, he became an activist and social entrepreneur, dedicating his life to the protection of human rights and the environment. For his work, he was selected by Time magazine as one of its "Heroes of the Planet"

This is a timely presentation by an engaging and inspiring speaker.  Dune will be exploring the following topics:  Why conservation based economies are the future.   Lessons and unresolved long-term impacts of the Exxon Valdez disaster.  Teaching of effective models of change to empower people to positively influence their local economy, protect endangered homelands and provide real solutions for energy and pollution challenges.
