Patty Dreier is currently writing The New Sustainability Movement: Keeping Nature Central which is set to be finished by Earth Day 2019 just in time for the countdown to the 50th Anniversary of the first Earth Day in 2020. What is our progress since 1970? What are our challenges and opportunities going forward? What's our call to action now and why does it matter?
This book will also include stories Patty will share about her environmental education work around the world. This includes Earth Day 1990 in San Antonio, Texas, where thousands of people participated in "Hands On Earth Peace" that she organized with Girl Scouts; founding the first German-American Earth Day with her German colleagues; and the day that Patty drove Senator Gaylord Nelson, Father of Earth Day, to the ceremony when he was inducted into the Wisconsin Conservation Hall of Fame in Stevens Point, Wisconsin.
Patty is accepting speaking engagements now.
