Ms. Weil is the co-founder and president of the Institute for Humane Education. Ms. Weil’s inspiring talk is entitled “How To Be A Solutionary.” Enjoy!

    Adding the career “solutionary” to my possible options for when I grow up! 🙂
    Great selection from TED talks.

      Glad to hear you enjoyed it Michelle – now when I post my Tuesday TED talks I think of you possibly squeezing in a few minutes to listen on your IPhone!

    Thanks for this, Christine. Highly motivational… I trundled off to find a copy of ‘Vegucated‘; Amazon UK has just two copies in stock — Region 1 (I live in ‘region 2’) US imports @ £71.90. I count no fewer than four things wrong with that (five if you include the fact that my first point of call was Amazon).

    1. Q: What do I care about? A: That the ‘civilisation’ of the ‘West’ is so badly broken.
    2. Q: What are my skills? A: Criticising. Being cynical. Spelling. Annoying people.
    3. Q: What do I love doing? A: Sleeping.

    I think I’m missing a trick somewhere. Suggestions welcome.

    PS 2A should include ‘searching for stuff on the innerwebz’:

    Christine, Jean and I have just watched that TED video – wow, wow and more wow.

    Jean has been a vegetarian for many years and I eat little meat as a direct consequence. But your post will change our ways.

    Thank you.

      Thanks for the feedback, Paul, and keep me posted on the changes you and Jean are making. I’m always looking for inspiration!

        We are both going to become vegans. I will write about the journey on Learning from Dogs! Best wishes, Paul

    I so appreciate that you shared my TEDx talk Christine! And I really appreciate the comments, too. (Pedantry: looking forward to hearing what else arises – no pun intended – re. the questions!).

    If interested, here’s my first TEDx talk, The World Becomes What You Teach

      What a lovely surprise this morning – thanks for dropping by, Zoe, and for the link. The work you are doing is so important right now, thanks for the inspiration!
