Kevin Danaher, the co-founder of the Green Festival San Francisco, an event highlighting the importance of sustainability to both business and public sectors, has a mission to create “solutionaries” to take part in the green global revolution.

What’s the goal behind the festival?
What we do at the festival is bring all of those green companies together in one place … and show people that we have to accelerate the transition to sustainability.

How important is the transition to sustainability? What we’re seeing is that every biological system on the planet is collapsing. Mother Nature is giving us a whole bunch of dope slaps to say, “Wake up!”

Do you think this movement will work? Well, if there was a God and God came down and told me, “Hey, this green economy stuff isn’t gonna work,” I would still do it because the nicest people in the world are involved in this movement.
