Tune in to part two of my interview with Denis Hayes, the coordinator of the first Earth Day. He talks about that day back in 1970 when he started the morning with a sunrise ceremony with Native Americans. What group of people do you think rose to the challenge and helped create the awareness and movement of “Earth Day?” Watch and find out.

I journeyed north to Seattle in January to meet with Denis Hayes, the coordinator of the first Earth Day. He is now President of the Bullitt Foundation. Denis grew up in Camas, WA and I wanted to talk to Denis about his experience coordinating that first Earth Day back in 1970. How did it happen? What did he learn? How did this opportunity present itself? Listen in as Denis shares his story and how you need to grab the brass ring, when the ring is there. I hope this interview inspires you to take chances, look outside the box and think of what YOU can do to make a difference somewhere in the world. This is part 1 of a 6 part series.
