Video from Ocean Robbins’ opening keynote, National Alliance for Peace, Washington, DC
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been asking questions. Maybe you have the same ones, like:
• How can we create sustained positive impact in the world, in the shortest amount of time, for the highest number of people?
• Can people who are making a big difference also sustain and thrive in their own lives, families and communities?
• How can we work together across lines like race, class and gender that have traditionally divided us?
• How can we contribute to a compassionate and thriving human presence on this planet?
Welcome to my website.
In 1990 at age 16, I founded YES!, an organization I directed for the next 20 years with the goal of connecting, inspiring and mobilizing visionary young leaders worldwide. I’ve spoken to hundreds of thousands of people, led hundreds of retreats, workshops and Jams for leaders in 65+ nations, written books, mentored (and learned from) changemakers, been a creative partner and lead editor for bestsellers, and I am a father of special needs twins.
Now I am CEO of the Food Revolution Network. 100,000+ people are mobilizing for healthy sustainable, humane and delicious food and food systems. I am also an adjunct professor of Peace Studies at Chapman University, a blogger, a speaker, and a facilitator. And a dad, a lover of live, and a human being who is trying to live in a good way on this earth.
I’m available as a keynote speaker, workshop and retreat facilitator, and a consultant for organizational development (helping organizations be more strategic, healthy and effective), families leveraging privilege (supporting privileged families in clarifying values and building meaningful legacy), and more. I’m also an author, and will be posting articles, blogs, and interviews on my site. Please sign up on the upper right-hand side of this page if you want to be kept in the loop and to receive a free copy of my latest mini-book, The Power of Partnership. You can watch my 18 minute “TED Talk” here.
Yours for thriving, just, and sustainable ways of life for all,
