Creating a Tipping Point for the Planet One Talk at a Time with Graham Hill - 175

Jun 17, 2021

Graham Hill has always been a pioneer. Early on, he created and sold one of the first internet companies, which gave him the opportunity to shift his focus. Since then he has created more companies, all with a focus on influencing the narrative around sustainability, which have been featured by the New York Times, Dwell, Discovery Channel, and “The Minimalists” documentary.

Today, he is a leading figure at the intersection of entrepreneurialism, innovation, and sustainability. One of Fast Company’s “100 Most Creative People in Business,” Graham is sought after for his ability to clearly communicate how we can all create a simpler, wealthier, greener, and happier planet. He has presented at many prestigious conferences including two main stage TED talks that have reached over 10 million people.

On this show, he is sharing about how speaking has helped him become a thought leader in the environmental space, and about his latest venture. 20 years in the making, The Carbonauts is the culmination of Graham Hill’s environmental career and the start of a movement that could tip the balance in nature’s favour, so that our planet and future generations are safe.
