Gillian Caldwell – 1Sky
While attending the 2009 Skoll World Forum at Oxford, Global X interviewed Gillian Caldwell, campaign director of 1Sky, which tries to "shift federal policy in the United States towards the prosperity of a sustainable, low-carbon economy."
Her moment of epiphany came in 2005 when she was still with Witness and watched Al Gore deliver his slide show on global warming (it later became One Inconvenient Truth).
"We are all on this boat together and we only have one chance to make it right," says Gillian Caldwell in this three-minute interview.
Her advice: listen! "The essence of social change and effective work is the heart of human relationship. I don’t think we can really be in an active and right relationship with people unless we are hearing them."
