During the initial planning stages of the International Living Future Institute’s 11th annual unConference, the theme was dedicated to Genius and Courage. The search then began for keynote speakers who are devoted to bringing these nouns to life in their daily actions. Our opening night keynote, Van Jones, does just that. The Yale-educated lawyer and social rights activist is a clear representation of genius and courage. In 2009, we introduced Jones in Trim Tab v01, highlighting his optimism and commitment to communities suffering from disinvestment and neglect. In the years that have followed, Trim Tab has continued to share compelling stories about regenerative communities and the people who inhabit them. And Van Jones has continued to further the movement of social inclusion and environmental justice for those who need it most.

Don’t miss your opportunity to see Van Jones’ keynote address at the Living Future unConference 2017, May 17-19, in Seattle, Washington.
