Conference Speakers & Program

Dr John Francis's story has inspired millions to treat each other with kindness and compassion, with care and concern for the well-being of the environment. Because "...how we treat each other, is really how we treat the environment."

After witnessing an oil spill in San Francisco Bay, he chose to stop using motorized vehicles and began walking wherever he went for 22 years as an affirmation of his responsibility to our planet,. His decision was greeted with surprise, disbelief, and even mockery – but it was only the start of a much deeper transformation. Several months later, on his 27th birthday, fed up with the arguments his decision to walk seemed to create with friends, John took a vow of silence lasting for 17 years.

In 1991, for his work in raising environmental consciousness, John Francis known the world over as the Planetwalker, was appointed the United Nations Environment Program’s Goodwill Ambassador to the World’s Grassroots Communities.

Today, Dr. Francis is visiting associate professor at the Gaylord Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, at University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is the author of Planetwalker and Ragged Edge of Silence.

He is now running for a seat in Congress!
