Starhawk's presentation for the Fisher Center lecture series was featured in the Nov. 18 Finger Lakes Times story “Think globally: Author says earth, people are connected.” Starhawk fuses political, religious, feminist and environmental theories to put forth a holistic view of the world.
Today's problems, Starhawk said, exist around the world, whether it be abroad or here at home. “The global economic system works at a local level.”
Sophomore Michelle Mejia said she was struck by the part in Starhawk's talk where she said, “The air we breathe is like a gift from nature. We are saying thank you for giving us life.” Mejia said she wasn't an environmentalist before the talk, but now she's going to try to pay more attention to the world around her.
