The crises facing our planet can be overwhelming. But it is not too late for change, says Van Jones, a respected social justice leader.

In this inspiring video, he shares that change begins with a worldview that says we're not going to leave anyone behind. Together, we can make the shift beyond a throw-away culture to a world in which everything is respected as sacred.

Van Jones is the President of the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights and Green For All.

“Dr. King didn't get famous giving a speech that said,‘I have a complaint.' It's time for us to start dreaming again and invite the country to dream with us. We don't have any ‘throw away’ species, nations, or children. We must birth a global green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.” —Van Jones
