Former President Clinton addresses Omega Institute on environmental sustainability

Clinton: "Interdependent world"

RHINEBECK – Former President Bill Clinton was the keynote speaker at the Omega Institute’s conference this weekend that addressed sustainable living in a global society.

The former president told the Rhinebeck conference that no matter whether a country is economically and financial advanced or depressed, they can all learn from one another.

“We’ve got to somehow get people to understand in an interdependent world we ignore evidence at our peril. We ignore what other countries are doing well, at our peril. We ignore the imperative of creative cooperation at our peril,” he said.

Clinton said it is important to examine sustainable issues from a holistic perspective based on the interconnection between human behavior, economic and social systems, and the environment.
