Summer of Peace 2014 > Community Peacebuilding > Arts & Culture
Broadcast on July 23, 2014
With Kai Sawyer
Kai will share his passion for food, mediation and urban transformation, As Kai says, "I love living off the land, gardening in his boxers or naked, eating fresh food all day, hanging out in nature with friends late into the night. But, I also love trying to change invisible structures (politics, economy, culture, legal systems) that are rapidly destroying our generous host (Earth). My view is that if we don't change cities, the centers of political and economic power, we won't have a chance of survival."
Founder of Tokyo Urban Permaculture, Wake Up! Tokyo, Power Shift Japan.
