Andrew Steer: Reinventing the economy to tackle climate change

 

Dr. Steer showcases the current influence and changes of our world economy. "We are now ready for a change in a way that we were not before. We have a window of opportunity to break through that inertia."

Dr. Andrew Steer served as president and CEO of the World Resources Institute from 2012 to 2021, when he left to become the president and CEO of the Bezos Earth Fund.

This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxFoggyBottom, an independent event.
