This week on Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, brings you the University of Louisville’s 2021 Grawemeyer Award Lecture on Global Environmental Governance, which was held virtually on April 13th. Ken Conca is the 2021 Grawemeyer Award winner for Ideas Improving World Order, and he spoke on his award winning ideas set forth in his book "An Unfinished Foundation: The United Nations and Global Environmental Governance." Learn more at http://grawemeyer.org/world-order/ The UN must rethink its approach to environmental problems. The United Nations can tackle global environmental challenges far more effectively by incorporating two overlooked parts of its mandate—human rights and peace—into its efforts. So says Ken Conca, an American University international relations professor. The U.N. has addressed environmental issues using legal and sustainable development approaches but also needs to pursue strategies linked to its role as a protector of human rights and peace. The organization should declare a safe and healthy environment to be a basic human right, give its Security Council a well-defined role in safeguarding the environment, make sure its environmental initiatives are conflict-sensitive and seek environmental peace-building opportunities. Conca is a member of the U.N. Environment Programme’s Expert Advisory Group on Conflict and Peace-building and founded the Environmental Peace-building Working Group in Washington. He was a reviewer for the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and served on a scientific steering committee for the International Human Dimensions Program on Global Environmental Change. He has twice won the International Studies Association’s award for best international environmental affairs book.

May is Mental Health Awareness month so we decided to interview 2 authors whose new memoirs deal with their mental health issues and the addictions that resulted from those issues. There is hardly a family who hasn’t been touched in some way by mental illness. For so many years, mental illness in all its forms--anxiety, depression, suicide or bipolar disorder--were kept under wraps which made the sufferers and their loved ones feel even more isolated. But recently, memoirs about messy lives, dysfunctional families, and the realities of finding help have become increasingly popular and can be a powerful tool for the author to help themselves in addition to their readers. Our guests Jaydee Graham and Vitale Buford chat with us about the power of the messy memoir. In part 1 of this week’s show, Jaydee talks to us about her book The Soul Grind: Fighting for Light Amongst the Trenches, an account of her struggles with alcohol and drugs in her teenage years. In part 2 Vitale Buford talks to us about her 2020 memoir, Addicted to Perfect, in which she describes her 10-year addiction to the prescription drug Adderall, a drug often prescribed for people with ADHD. For those who abuse it, it can cause euphoria and the feeling of having superhuman amounts of energy. In Vitale’s case, she used Adderall because she felt it gave her the energy to be able to be “perfect.” Book Mentioned in this Episode: 1- The Soul Grind : Fighting for Light Amongst the Trenches by Jaydee Graham 2- Addicted to Perfect: A Journey Out of the Grips of Adderall by Vitale Buford 3- Make Your Mess a Memoir by Anna David 4- A New Pair of Glasses by Chuck C. 5- Co-Dependent No More by Melody Beattie 6- The Art of Forgiving by Lewis B. Smedes 7- The Gentle Path Through the Twelve Steps: The Classic Guide for All People in the Process of Recovery by Patrick Carnes 8- Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear by Elizabeth Gilbert 9- Books by Glennan Doyle 10- The Benefits of Being an Octopus by Ann Braden 11- Harry's Trees by Jon Cohen 12- Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan 13- Reasons Not to Die by Matt Haig 14- A Beautiful Mind by Sylvia Nasar 15- Wild by Cheryl Strayed 16 - Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight by Alexandra Fuller
