Media Impact Spotlight – Ep5 – Van Jones

I had the opportunity to meet Van Jones recently. Best known for being an environmental advocate and bestselling author of The Green Collar Economy, President Barack Obama appointed him as the Special Advisor for Green Jobs back in 2009. Hear what he has to say about the most pertinent issue we need to tackle in 2011, and what the media’s role should be.

Thanks to Northwestern SEED for organizing the event and inviting Van Jones for their Fall Speaker series. It was incredibly inspiring and enjoyable.
