We head to Byron Bay to hear environmentalist Paul Hawken and filmmaker Damon Gameau in an epic conversation about the state of the planet. Paul’s renowned book, Project Drawdown, is the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming—it outlines the 100 most substantive solutions to address climate change. Throughout this conversation, Paul and Damon explore why empowering girls and women is the number one solution to reversing global warming, how gratitude is central to building a more sustainable future and why we know more about Mars than we do about a cubic centimetre of soil.
