Bringing Down Big Carbon with Paul Hawken

EcoRadio KC is fortunate to have the opportunity to share with you a live conversation with one of the biggest crusaders in the movement to reverse climate change Paul Hawken.  Interviewers, Teresa Wilke and Dave Bennett Freeling will be asking about some of the powerful changes that are happening and those that we can make happen for our future.

Paul is an renowned environmentalist, entrepreneur, author and activist who has dedicated his life to environmental sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment. He is one of the environmental movement’s leading voices, and a pioneering architect of corporate reform with respect to ecological practices. His work includes founding successful, ecologically conscious businesses, writing about the impacts of commerce on living systems, and consulting with heads of state and CEOs on economic development, industrial ecology, and environmental policy. Paul is Founder of Project Drawdown, a non-profit dedicated to researching when and how global warming can be reversed. The organization maps and models the scaling of substantive technological, social, and ecological solutions.
