It's About Carlo..

Just finishing up my article for Denver News about Italian activist Carlo Petrini, who I had the chance to interview during the Slow Money Gathering Boulder this April.  I came on this trailer about a documentary coming out exactly today featuring the Italian environmentalist/bio gastronome rock star himself!

Interview @SloMo with Carlo Petrini

The Slow Money Gathering  winding down on Tuesday morning in Boulder, Colorado,  Carlo Petrini, Founder &Visionary, Slow Food and Woody Tasch  of Slow Money meet with Journalists for an 'intimate' Coffee Kvetsch session ahead of the day's agenda. I wrote about the last Gathering in San Francisco and the Denver News invited me to follow up on this very important event in my monthly Go Green column. 

This video is from the Walk the Talk Show, produced by Waylon Lewis of Elephant Journal fame and I think that it sums up a lot of what was fantastic about the 4th Annual Slow Money Gathering 

Slow Food is about Food, but not just.  Carlo Petrini talks about civil society and how we must do our part in making the world a better place. As often my focus is on women in business and otherwise it was up to me to ask about the role that women play in this forward looking movement.  At 28:50 you can hear his answer to that question.
