Duration: 2.44 min
Duane Elgin is an author, speaker, educator, consultant, and media activist. For more than three decades, Duane has been in the forefront of exploring humanity's evolutionary journey, sustainable ways of living, media accountability and citizen empowerment, and the convergence of the new science with the world's wisdom traditions. He pioneered the “Voluntary Simplicity” movement with his now classic first book, titled by the same name, published in the 1980s. In his most recent book, Promise Ahead: A Vision of Hope and Action for Humanity's Future (2000), Elgin explores how humanity is on the brink of a global, whole-system crisis where we will have the choice of either pulling together to create an evolutionary bounce, or pulling apart to precipitate an evolutionary crash.

Warren Flandez grew up in northern Canada listening to the soulful strains of Al Green and Marvin Gaye. Overcoming severe asthma and ignoring a singing coach who said he didn't have what it takes, he's now perched on the edge of stardom – and about to go into the studio with Warren Riker, 2-time Grammy winning producer for Lauryn Hill and the Fugees. And he's got a heart just as big as his voice. His socially conscious songs like World Cry are a call out to his generation to stand up for human rights – and he's sung for numerous volunteer causes including War Child Canada. He's also headlining a concert for Canadian Students for Darfur, an organization working to raise awareness about atrocities in Darfur, Sudan, where more than two million people have fled their homes and 400,000 have been killed in a situation described by the UN as one of the planet's worst humanitarian crises. Flandez is proof that if you follow your passions and beliefs and sing them strong, people will listen.
