500Gallons Interview with Dr. Kevin Danaher

It was well worth driving up to San Francisco the other day.  Traffic notwithstanding, we made it to meet with Dr. Kevin Danaher.  Kevin was very generous with his time and the Founder and Executive Producer of the Green Festival, and Executive Director of the Global Citizen Center sat down to talk passionately and at length about sustainability, the green festival, global exchange, and other issues close to his heart.  Here is the interview.

In Part I Kevin talks about his passion for sustainability, what got him to go down this path, as well as discusses Global Exchange at length, as well as the concept of fair trade stores

In Part II Kevin explores his conceptualization of the ‘Green Festival’ and its many years in existence.

Part III saw Dr. Danaher talk about the green economy center, a novel concept that he is spearheading.  Watch him explain how he plans to bring all things sustainable under one big roof and provide a forum for the smaller players to survive and thrive.

Finally in Part IV we spoke about the role of the internet, public policy when it came to sustainability as well as probing what the average citizen can do.

We really hope you liked this four part piece from 500Gallons.  Stay tuned as we plan to bring more of these interviews from the road for your pleasure.  Up next in the ‘We Salute You’ series is Aseem Das from World Centric.  We hope you can join us.  We can’t wait!
