Describe yourself briefly.

Billy Parish dropped out of Yale in 2002 to help build a youth movement for climate solutions. As Founder and Coordinator of the Energy Action Coalition for four years, Billy brought together over 50 diverse, youth-led organizations into a joint campaign to catalyze the transition to a clean energy economy called The Campus Climate Challenge. One of the lead architects of the Clean Energy Corps program to create 5 million new green jobs, Billy now works with Green for All, 1Sky and Black Mesa Water Coalition on advocacy for green job creation. Billy was a 2005 Rolling Stone magazine "Climate Hero," Mother Jones magazine's 2006 "Student Activist of the Year," an Utne Magazine "Visionary" in 2008 and was named a "Fellow" by Ashoka, the global association of the world's leading social entrepreneurs. He is also a co-founder of Green Owl Records, a green music label under Warner Music Group, and is a Board Member of several companies and non-profits.
