John Passacantando    

Former Executive Director of Greenpeace USA

Known for his shockingly honest “State of the Planet” address, Passacantando – a conservative turned environmentalist – has been fighting for over two decades to protect our planet and save it from the “carbon-based” peril we find ourselves in today. An issue of magnitude for everyone, from progressives to conservatives, corporations to educational institutions, and GenY to Boomers, the environment has become a hot button topic that we can no longer afford to ignore.

Former Executive Director of Greenpeace USA, the largest environmental organization in the world, Passacantando aggressively combated a variety of issues during his eight-year tenure, while largely growing the staff and annual budget. From challenging political leaders on policies that ignored such important issues as climate change, to attempting to stop illegal logging in the Amazon, he helped Greenpeace see some of the greatest victories in the history of the organization.

Today, a sought-after environmental speaker, he remains instrumental in focusing public attention on the importance of the revival of our environment. An inspirational voice who is known for his brave actions that continue to accomplish change, Passacantando is a respected leader in recruiting everyone to work harder and smarter in rescuing our planet. Always a man looking ahead for solutions instead of looking back to place blame, he will no doubt play a considerable role in helping us effectively navigate and make the most of the emerging green economy on the horizon.
