Al Gore Finds Hope in Local Climate Action - Keynote Speech at UNDP Equator Prize 2014

Al Gore delivers a rousing closing address at the United Nations Development Programme’s Equator Prize 2014 on Monday September 22 in New York.

Speaking candidly and from the heart, Gore calls on individuals, businesses and governments alike, to find inspiration in the grassroots initiatives like those demonstrated by the Equator Prize winners. These local and indigenous communities, many of which are led by women, are on the frontlines of poverty and environment challenges, delivering sustainable livelihoods and mitigating climate change in the process. They are living proof that there is power in local action.
