For over 30 years, World Steward has focussed on "the 'art and science' of managing resources as if the future mattered." Located in the Columbia Gorge, the center stewards farm and forestland, and fosters educational programs that engage students of all ages in the preservation of ecosystems and local economies. World Steward is also fostering Intergenerational Finance (IGF), which Amory Lovins (Chairman/Chief Environmental Scientist of the Rocky Mountain Institute), has called "Perhaps the most important new idea to enter economic thought in this century." IGF has the potential to harness trillions of dollars for sustainable business practices and infrastructure.  Guest host Stephanie Potter speaks with World Steward founder Hank Patton about these projects and more. Call-ins welcome.
