Paul Hawken is a visionary social entrepreneur, the award-winning author of multiple landmark books including Blessed Unrest, The Ecology of Commerce and Natural Capitalism (co-author), and the Co-Founder of OneSun, a radically innovative solar energy technology company. In this speech, Hawken discusses his younger days, how and why he started a health food store in Boston in the 1970s, and our connection with nature and each other.
"We have invented an economic system -then and now- that doesn't just kill life, it depends on killing life."
