Thank you for joining us during this virtual event on Feb. 23, 2021. Denis Hayes ’64 talked about how the Pacific Northwest can take the lead in building healthy human ecosystems during this virtual event.

Hayes was the inspirational organizer of the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, an event that excited 20 million people to gather in cities across the United States. Today, as the CEO of the Pacific Northwest conservation group Bullitt Foundation, the innovator focuses on how to build resilient cities with green, living buildings that rely less on petroleum resources. He is steadfast in his belief that people can create technological innovations to solve environmental challenges. In doing so, he believes we can pass on a diverse, habitable planet to the next generation.

Denis Hayes is a Clark alumnus who champions building green cities.

Hayes leads an effort to steer major cities in the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia to follow sustainable paths. The Bullitt Foundation applies ecological principles to the design of healthy, resilient human ecosystems. Under his leadership, the foundation designed and constructed the Bullitt Center, the world’s greenest office building, which operates commercially. Learn more about Hayes.
