An Evening with Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a global icon; a mammoth of public life, sports, and entertainment. An immigrant with few resources, except those that really mattered: a vision, a fire in the belly, and huge charisma, his story is one of classic inspiration and the American dream. Gov. Schwarzenegger shares the four principles that have underpinned his success: have a vision and trust it; break the rules; don't be afraid to fail; and work hard - there are no shortcuts.
Will Innovation and Green Technologies Save the Global Economy?
From his experience in American politics to his efforts combating climate change, Gov. Schwarzenegger incarnates openness to change and the boldness of innovative solutions. His legacy is a California that is a world leader in renewable energy innovation, technology development and deployment. Gov. Schwarzenegger discusses the need to shift the debate on energy from a singular focus on carbon emission reduction, and instead urgently develop an American energy strategy. He identifies security and the U.S.'s overreliance on foreign oil; the need to address pollution more generally; and the importance of energy productivity, green jobs and technological innovation as the primary objectives of such a strategy.
