Dr. Brundtland on Changemakers
Come hear from world leader Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland on how individual investment and participation in the community leads to healthier and more sustainable societies. Through former roles as Prime Minister of Norway, Director General of the World Health Organization, and UN Special Envoy on Climate Change, as well as her current role as Deputy Chair of The Elders, Dr. Brundtland knows what it means to be a changemaker--leading by example, creating positive social change and inspiring others to do the same. This is a special opportunity to hear from Dr. Brundtland while she is in residence as the 2013-2014 Mimi and Peter E. Haas Distinguished Visitor at Stanford University, Haas Center for Public Service.

Co-sponsored by Sustainable San Mateo County and Thrive - The Alliance for Nonprofits of San Mateo County


About Dr. Brundtland
An energetic blend of stateswoman, physician, manager, politician, and international activist, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland has always led the world on issues of global significance. For over four decades, she has been dedicated to global interdependence, focusing on promoting sustainable development, increasing environmental awareness, and advocating for good health as a basic human right.

Dr. Brundtland spent ten years as a physician and scientist, and 20 years in public office, including serving as Prime Minister of Norway for more than ten years - the first woman, and the youngest person to ever do so. She was Chair of the World Commission of Environment and Development, and the first female Director-General of the World Health Organization.

Her forward-thinking and global awareness continues to elevate her worldwide profile. She has served as UN Special Envoy on Climate Change, seeking ways to balance human enterprise and the planet's limits. The guiding force behind the "Brundtland Report" on sustainability over 25 years ago, she maintains her focus on the developmental impact of climate change and global warming.

As Deputy Chair of The Elders, a group founded in 2007 by Nelson Mandela, chaired by Kofi Annan with fellow members as Martti Ahtissari, Ela Bhatt, Lakhdar Brahimi, Fernando Enrique Cardoso, Jimmy Carter, Gracha Machel, Mary Robinson and Archbishop Desmond Tutu, she contributes her wisdom, independent leadership, and integrity to tackling the world's toughest problems, aiming to make the world a better place.
