2012-13 Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century Speaker Series

The NYU Reynolds Program in Social Entrepreneurship is pleased to continue the 2012-13 Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century Speaker Series
Join us on December 5, 12:00pm – 1:30pm for an engaging and interactive afternoon with Colin Beavan (aka “No Impact Man”), Author, Activist, Green Party Congressional Candidate, and Executive Director of the No Impact Project. The event takes place at NYU Wagner’s Rudin Family Forum in The Puck Building, 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd floor, New York, NY.  It is free and open to the public, but space is limited and an RSVP is required by clicking here or by cutting and pasting http://bit.ly/beavanRSVP into your browser.

Named by MSN as one of the “Ten Most Influential Men” and chosen as an “Eco-Illuminator” by Elle Magazine, Colin is an author, filmmaker and one of the world’s best known spokespeople on environmental issues, consumerism and human quality of life. In his talk “To Hell With Sustainability” Colin will discuss how the limited objectives of standard sustainability programs must be expanded in order to save the planet, improve human quality of life, and make “sustainable” business attractive to customers.

Now in its seventh year, the Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century Speaker Series features a remarkable selection of social entrepreneurs and related leaders who have launched extraordinary programs, companies and movements addressing the most pressing challenges of the 21st century.  Reflecting the NYU Reynolds belief that social entrepreneurship is a meta-profession drawing on cross-disciplinary knowledge and practice, the series presents prominent social entrepreneurs and leaders from across the spectrum of public and professional sectors who will share their insights as cutting-edge, far-reaching change makers.
