The Center for Humans and Nature is proud to once again co-sponsor the Geography of Hope Conference. The biennial conference brings together leading writers and activists in the coastal village of Point Reyes Station, California for a three-day feast of readings, discussions, and activities to inspire and deepen an understanding of the relationships between people and place.

Center for Humans and Nature Senior Scholars Robin Wall Kimmerer and Kathleen Dean Moore will co-chair the 2015 gathering. A fierce compassion for the well-being of the Earth illuminates the writing of both women and helps deepen an understanding of the relationship between people and place. They will be joined by a dozen or more of the country’s most admired writers who also use language—whether poetry, fiction, or literary non-fiction—to express a sense of urgency about environmental concerns.

Join Point Reyes Books, Black Mountain Circle, the US Forest Service, and the Center for Humans and Nature for the fourth Geography of Hope conference featuring M. Kat Anderson, Camille Dungy, Gretel Ehrlich, Carolyn Finney, Susan Griffin, Robert Hass, Brenda Hillman, Wendy Johnson, Robin Wall Kimmerer, Kathleen Dean Moore, Melissa K. Nelson, Ann Pancake, Claire Peaslee, Rhiannon, Kim Stanley Robinson, Lauret Savoy, Rebecca Solnit, and Priscilla Ybarra.
