For 50 years Planet Drum Foundation has been helping activists define and recognize their life-places to begin living in harmony with the Earth. As a voice for bioregional sustainability, education and culture, Planet Drum Foundation explores bioregions using art, poetry, manifestos, humor, theater, and publications.

As Planet Drum states: We are part of the places we live and natural systems are always the basis for culture and long-term sustainability. Our best hope to save the biosphere is by repairing and maintaining individual bioregions. (Call it a bioregion, a life place or just simply local.

Panelists are: Jerry Martien, author/poet; Stephanie Mills, author; Remi Rubel, artist; Jim Dodge, author; Nancy Morita, artist and cartographer; Greg Castillo moderator, historian and architect
