Marianne is a best-selling author, thought leader, and spokesperson. Her forthcoming book Stone Soup for a Sustainable World: Life-Changing Stories of Young Heroes spotlights 100 climate change activists, education champions, change makers, green entrepreneurs/inventors, trail blazers, next-gen philanthropists, and intergenerational/legacy stories who are all working to build a more sustainable world.

A sustainability champion, workforce development strategist, and CSR pioneer who catalyzes innovative public-private partnerships that address economic, social, and environmental challenges.  She uses the Stone Soup model to inspire people to work together to build a sustainable world.

The Stone Soup Leadership Institute is a global leader in learning tools, inspiring videos and initiatives with business, young people, and communities. The Institute's Virtual Education Toolkit leverages the inspiring book and curriculum Stone Soup for the World: Life-Changing Stories of Everyday Heroes. It is a content-driven, values-based, blended experiential learning environment ideally suited for today's virtual reality.  It offers educators tools to supplement their curriculum with inspiring stories from the books, videos, lesson plans, courses, and resources.  It is dedicated to the Institute's long-time chairperson of the Stone Soup Leadership Institute, Walter Cronkite.

Ms. Larned's work with the business community was influenced by her mentor, Claire Nuer, and Learning as Leadership to create a culturally inclusive corporate culture; reduce executive burnout; increase healthy relationships with their families; while striving to build a more humanistic business model.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
