I am pleased to welcome our newest members of the EcoViva Advisory Board: Naomi Klein and Avram Lewis. Naomi and Avi are great friends of EcoViva and have gotten to know our work and issues firsthand through our partners with the Mangrove Association. Avi traveled with us to El Salvador in 2012 to shoot footage for an upcoming documentary film.
We are also excited to share that Naomi Klein and Cardinal Turkson (one of Pope Francis’ senior aides on climate change) is invited to speak at a high-level conference in Rome to debate climate action.
Naomi is an award-winning journalist and best-selling author. Her most recent book, This Changes Everything, is a rallying cry to transform our global economic system before we wreck our global ecosystem. Her other books include No Logo and The Shock Doctrine. To read more about Naomi, visit her website or follow her on Twitter.
Avi is a journalist and documentary filmmaker. He is the director of the upcoming feature documentary, This Changes Everything. His award-winning debut documentary The Take followed Argentina’s legendary movement of worker-run businesses. Avi has also been a TV host for Al Jazeera English Television and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.
