Vien Truong – California Climate Leadership
To make real progress on climate change, we need a true collaborative movement, reaching across race, class and ethnic divisions. In California, where 73% of those under 18 years old are people of color, Vien Truong walks us through practical examples and models of what success looks like – and what it’s going to take to build this movement. Truong, Environmental Equity Director at the Greenlining Institute, works with the state legislature, California Public Utilities Commission, and in localities around the state to create solutions for poverty and pollution.
This speech was given at the 2014 California Climate Leadership Intensive, hosted by Bioneers, which took place as a supplement to the 2014 Bioneers Annual Conference.
