Marika Holmgren Sustainability advocate, cancer ass-kicker, mountain biker

Marika Holmgren produces sustainable events for progressive non-profits. She spent many years as an environmental advocate and grassroots organizer prior to starting her own event production firm. She is a breast cancer survivor, a club she never wanted to be a part of, but one in which now finds herself deeply enmeshed. She is the current Acting President of the Board of ForestEthics, an organization which catalyzes environmental leadership among industry, governments and communities by running hard-hitting and highly effective campaigns that leverage public dialogue and pressure to protect forests.

When she’s not kicking cancer’s ass or greening up events, she rides her mountain bike as part of Team Luna Chix Bay Area, a women’s mountain biking team sponsored by Clif Bar that raises funds for Breast Cancer Fund.
