Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, one of the nation’s most innovative thought leaders in ocean and coastal conservation and recent co-creator of the Blue New Deal, a roadmap for including the ocean in climate policy, explains how she developed a passion for marine biology and ocean conservation, and draws from the brand new anthology of wisdom by women climate leaders she co-edited with Katharine Wilkinson, All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, to share her vision of how emerging forms of honest, heart-centered leadership can help humanity address the greatest crisis it has ever faced.

Dr. Johnson delivered this talk at the 2020 Bioneers Conference, introduced by Nina Simons.
