Opinions on LecturesEdit

Santa Cruz 05/22/06Edit

  • Evon Peter was amazing! I would have to say he was the best speaker I saw of the ESLP lecture series this year. He was so passionate and happy to be talking with the group. The aspect about his lecture that I loved the most was that he didn't seem to be simply regurgitating information, but almost as if this was the first time he told his story. I could have listened to him talked for hoursa upon hours. Too bad it was only an hour and a half long.-Cheyanne
  • I agree completely with Cheyenne. Not only was Evon so effective because of his contagious passion for the earth and it's creations, but his message was well received by the ESLP class because he talked to us like a peer. Sometimes the goals of sustainability are intimidating, we all know it is going to take a large effort by a large amount of people, but Evon made these goals seem attainable through even the smallest impact done by one individual person. -Kat
