‘Ecological Handprints’ Captures Grass-roots Global Innovation

Dec 19, 2016


The Solar Sister program in central Africa is just one of the examples featured in "Ecological Handprints."

   Is it possible to fight poverty and climate change at the same time? The answer is emphatically yes, and Rocky Rohwedder has examples to prove it.

  Rohwedder, who has now retired from his position at Sonoma State, found some important allies in his Ecological Handprints project. One was South African Bishop Desmond Tutu, who wrote an introduction for the book. Others included top-flight photographers who donated their images.

Their contributions were part of the factors in Rohwedder's decision to publish this book electronically.
