Keynote speakers at past breakfast and dinner events have included author and environmentalist Bill McKibben, green jobs visionary Van Jones, urban revitalization strategy consultant Majora Carter, philanthropist Bill Gates on how to address climate change through clean energy innovation, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, business innovator Tom Steyer, Managing Director of the California Clean Energy Fund (CalCEF) Danny Kennedy, the creators of Showtime's Years of Living Dangerously, Nike's VP of the Innovation Accelerator Hannah Jones, and Mindy Lubber of Ceres.
