Think about disposability in the context of plastic water bottles and cheap clothing, and what that’s doing to our planet. Now think about disposability in the context of lives and people and what seeing one another as “disposable” — as having no value, no purpose — is doing to our humanity. These are thoughts Ana Garcia Doyle brings to the surface in her TEDxOakParkWomen event talk, “Ecology and Equity: What's Possible?”
All around her, Ana sees connections, the interconnectedness of our world. In the environment. In the political sphere. In our communities large and small. We all are connected and we need each other, she believes.
Her visionary leadership as director of One Earth Film Festival has helped shape the way people connect across the Chicago region around tackling the most pressing environmental issues of our time.
She believes "there is no time like the present to focus on the future of our planet and of generations to come." She believes #ThisIsTheMoment to step and take action for our One Earth.
