The Arctic Sunrise has a rich history. The Russian government seized the ship and the 30 peaceful activists on board in 2013 when Greenpeace protested Arctic oil drilling by the Russian company Gazprom (click here to read more). The Arctic Sunrise was also the first ship to circumnavigate James Ross Island in the Antarctic. It has worked to stop Japanese whaling fleets’ attempts to pursue their so-called scientific whaling program, chased private vessels fishing illegally, navigated both the Congo and the Amazon, and performed independent assessment of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The Arctic Sunrise spent January and February 2018 doing research in Antarctica to build the case for establishing the world’s largest marine sanctuary in the Southern Ocean.

In 2008, Shasta Visions created the first Erdman Campbell Globe Award for the Joseph Campbell Foundation to recognize Stuart Brand & Alexander Rose "for contributions to the Mythopoetic Imagination."

Stuart Brand was the founding editor of the Whole Earth Catalog and founded a number of organizations, including The WELL, the Global Business Network, and the Long Now Foundation. He was a part of Ken Keseys "Merry Pranksters" and co-produced the Trips Festival in San Francisco, an early effort involving rock music, light shows and the Grateful Dead performing in San Francisco. In 1966, Brand campaigned to have NASA release the then-rumored satellite image of the entire Earth as seen from space. He sold and distributed buttons for 25 cents each asking, "Why haven't we seen a photograph of the whole Earth yet?". During this campaign, Brand met Richard Buckminster Fuller, who offered to help Brand with his projects. In 1967, a satellite, ATS-3, took the photo. Brand thought the image of our planet would be a powerful symbol. It adorned the first (Fall 1968) edition of Brand's Whole Earth Catalog. Later in 1968, NASA astronaut Bill Anders took an Earth photo, Earthrise, from Moon orbit, which became the front image of the spring 1969 edition of the Catalog. 1970 saw the first celebration of Earth Day. During a 2003 interview, Brand explained that the image "gave the sense that Earth's an island, surrounded by a lot of inhospitable space. And it's so graphic, this little blue, white, green and brown jewel-like icon amongst a quite featureless black vacuum."  Find out more about this amazing man here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stewart_Brand  Another way of supporting peace on earth.....
