Amanda Joy Ravenhill | TEDxTokyo 2014
Amanda Joy Ravenhill believes in the power of business to tackle social issues, most pressingly climate change. She is a professor at Presidio Graduate School in San Francisco, where she teaches regenerative business and systems thinking to MBA and MPA candidates.
She is Executive Director of Project Drawdown, which defines and describes more than 100 impeccably researched, state-of-the-shelf technologies that reduce and sequester greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Amanda is currently working with Paul Hawken on an accompanying book, “Drawdown,” to be published in 2015.
Amanda co-founded the Hero Hatchery, a fellowship for climate change icons. She is inspired by polymath Buckminster Fuller, who aimed to “make the world work for 100% of humanity in the shortest possible time through spontaneous cooperation without ecological offense or disadvantage to anyone.
