ed’s intro: I was honored (okay, psyched) to have lunch, at the Kitchen in Boulder, with Slow Money founder Woody Tasch, yesterday. He’s a sweet, sincere, pioneering bundle of energy and do-goodery. Let’s support! elephant may even sponsor his Slow Money conference, this summer, more news coming soon, and yours truly, Waylon Lewis, may bring our Walk the Talk Show to the conference, which includes our old idol Bill McKibben of 350.org.
Is it a revolution? Common sense? A new form of fiscal prudence?
Howwabout all of the above.
Slow Money, a new NGO promoting “nurture capital” with a new vision of what it means to be an investor in the 21st century, just launched a campaign to get one million signatures on the Slow Money Principles. These principles would enable one million investors to invest 1% of their assets in local food systems. The buzz is strong, including Slow Money’s strong showing thus far in the change.org competition of the Top Ten Ideas for Change in America, underway this week.
