In a conversation with Time Magazine’s Environmentalist of the Year, Van Jones spoke about his belief that we can begin to fill the glass by reframing the “American Dream” to build a more sustainable future by creating a new narrative frame of reference. One of his visions calls for citizens to fight for their right to be an energy producer, whereas at the moment we are forced to be energy consumers. Americans should be talking about “Cowboy Power” not “Hippie Power” he spoke.

Whether or not the glass is half full or half empty, rest assured sustainable change is happening – albeit on an incremental scale one glass at a time. We just hope that some of the newly formed relationships between the power players at Fortune’s Annual Brainstorm Green make the transition into business deals and collaborative projects that continue to push the sustainable threshold.
