Highlights of our work since 1998 include our now annual Gandhi Birthday Celebration, raising funds to help Afghanistan reduce landmine casualties, and educational programs for the Utah public schools. We also raised the funds for a statue of Gandhi which was placed just outside the new Family Justice Center at the YWCA.

UCCD World Affairs Lecture: Jeff Greenwald - Thirteen Tips for the Accidental Ambassador @ Vieve Gore Concert Hall in the Emma Eccles Jones Conservatory | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

Travel is now the world’s largest industry. How can the economic power of tourism help promote human rights and the environment? One solution is for travelers to “vote with their wings,” visiting countries with high scores in human rights, social welfare, and environmental protection. By following Jeff Greenwald’s 13 common-sense precepts on the road, travelers can become empowered to change the world.

Oakland-based writer and activist Jeff Greenwald is the executive director and cofounder of Ethical Traveler, a nonprofit organization dedicated to human rights and environmental protection. The author of six acclaimed travel books (including Shopping for Buddhas, now in its 25th Anniversary Edition), he also wrote and performs in a one-man show, Strange Travel Suggestions.

The Ambassador John Price & Marcia Price World Affairs Lecture Series is presented by the Utah Council for Citizen Diplomacy in partnership with Westminster College.

All lectures are free and open to the public, and are held in the
Vieve Gore Concert Hall, Westminster College, 1840 S. 1300 E., Salt Lake City.

A poetry evening filled with fierce explorations of love.

Each one of us grows almost against our will into a steadily unfolding story where the

horizon gets broader and more mysterious. There is no other life than the one that involves

this constant beckoning, this invitation to the fiercer aspects of existence.

This will be a time spent with David Whyte where he asks us those questions that do not

produce easy answers but which help us to re-imagine ourselves, our world and our part in

it. Especially, questions which work to reshape our identities, helping us to become larger,

more generous, more courageous; and more loving.

DAVID WHYTE Poet, Author, Lecturer grew up with a strong, imaginative influence from

his Irish mother among the hills and valleys of his father’s Yorkshire. He now makes his

home in the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

The author of seven books of poetry and three books of prose, David Whyte holds a degree

in Marine Zoology and has traveled extensively, including living and working as a naturalist

guide in the Galapagos Islands and leading anthropological and natural history expeditions

in the Andes, Amazon and Himalaya. He brings this wealth of experience to his poetry,

His life as a poet has created a readership and listenership in three normally mutually

exclusive areas: the literate world of readings that most poets inhabit, the psychological

and theological worlds of philosophical enquiry and the world of vocation, work and
