Great Shift Dialogue: Kevin Danaher and Medea Benjamin

Visionaries: Medea Benjamin and Kevin Danaher

Global Exchange and Green Festival co-founders Medea Benjamin and Kevin Danaher are masters of finding practical solutions that create systemic change. In this dialogue, they explore a triple-bottom line economy, the global grassroots revolution in values, and the opportunity to use America’s worldwide network of military bases as hubs for green innovation. They sound a strong call to global citizenship, which leaves behind the militaristic and aggressive psychology that supports American empire, and opens the door to more conscious forms of collaboration. Kevin’s strategic economic analysis is complemented by Medea’s reflections on creating heart-centered political change. Together, these practical visionaries suggest a range of strategies that can turn problems such as polluted military bases or derelict school districts into opportunities for collective healing, economic growth, and innovation. Their ultimate vision goes beyond their lifetimes, which reflects the shift to thinking in a multi-generational way about our decisions today.
