Summer 2009: A Healthy Legacy

PAN Mag summer 09

We stand at a unique moment in time. One that offers the an opportunity to leave a healthy legacy for our children and our planet. The stories in this issue—from young activists, PAN campaigners, and mothers with growing children—are told with a fierce determination to create a better world. The stories affirm some common understandings: We have seen firsthand the harm that pesticides do to people and the earth. We know we cannot continue on a trajectory of harmful chemical use. And we know that change on the scale before us requires collective political action.
