Small Planet Institute

Founded in 2001 by Frances Moore Lappé, author of 18 books including Diet for a Small Planet, and Anna Lappé, author of Diet for a Hot Planet, the Small Planet Institute serves to further a transition to “Living Democracy,” a type of democracy in which power is seen as a dynamic, enabling relationship, not a one-way force. Living Democracy recognizes the link between food democracy, environmental sustainability and social justice and practices values of inclusion, fairness and mutual accountability. The Small Planet Institute creates books, radio and television programs, videos, and public presentations that showcase positive local solutions to global issues.
