What will it take for people to move beyond ideology towards a comprehensive solution to the climate crisis? Drawing on the historical lead-up to the New Deal, Tom Hayden pulls from the public and the personal to sketch a new story for our time.
Tom Hayden is one of the leading figures of the student, civil rights, anti-war and environmental movements of the 1960s, went on to serve 18 years in the California legislature, where he chaired labor, higher education and natural resources committees. Director of the Peace and Justice Resource Center, he continues to be a leading voice for peace.
This speech was given at the California Climate Leadership Intensive, hosted by Bioneers as a supplement to the 2014 Bioneers National Conference.
