    Lesley University welcomes author and leading American environmental activist John Francis, known world over as the “Planetwalker,” who will offer his unique perspective on the environment and how each person can make a difference in our world as part of Lesley’s Conversations series on Tuesday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m. in Marran Theater.
    Francis is the author of “Planetwalker. 22 Years of Walking. 17 Years of Silence,” and in 2011, the National Geographic Society published his acclaimed second book, “The Ragged Edge of Silence: Finding Peace in a Noisy World.”
    He believes the current environmental crisis is a reflection of worldwide social and economic inequity, and attempts to resolve the crisis must not only address the scientific issues, such as climate change and deforestation – but also the humanitarian issues. He contends that our connection to the earth, as well as each other, is at the heart of the environmental crisis.
    Lesley Conversations are free and open to the public. Francis will speak on Tuesday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m. in Marran Theater on Lesley’s Doble Campus, 34 Mellen Street, Cambridge, Mass.
