LONDON -- (Marketwire) -- 12/05/12 -- The "I Am Eco-Warrior" book is a collection of conversations with more than 53 global game-changers, who address the environmental crisis in innovative, groundbreaking, and pioneering ways. The book shifts the dialogue from traditional environmentalists to leaders in business, fashion, government, music, media, and more. Photographed around the world by Roger Moenks, "IAEW" is beautiful, engaging, and enlightening. The in-depth interviews go far beyond the typical "What inspired you?" to reveal the inspiring and challenging stories of people who refuse to settle for anything less than world-changing innovation. These leaders form the core of the "I Am Eco-Warrior" community. We must make sustainability affordable and profitable to allow for long-term behavior change. The book features Ted Turner, Jeffrey Sachs, Stella McCartney, Sir Richard Branson, Douglas Tompkins, Anna Zegna, David De Rothshild, Melanie Laurent, Francis Ford Coppola, Muhtar Kent, Howard G. Buffet, Jane Goodall, Jim Clark, Brett Tollman, Mayor Bloomberg and many more.
The event will take place on December 10th from 6 to 7:30 pm.
