Mountainfilm 2011: Kickoff, Symposium and Inspiring Action

Things are off to a good start here in Telluride. With our Awareness Into Action symposium on Friday we heard from many inspirational guests. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the day:

"Without vision people perish." -James Balog

"Joy-based philanthrophy: looking at happiness as a human need." -Dan Austin of 88Bikes

"Each of us here has not just the capacity, but the responsibility [to take action]." -Shannon Galpin of Mountain2Mountain

"When I think about how to inspire others to take action, I think about what inspired me: humility, compassion." -Hilton Kelley
