March 19, 2013 — Throughout her career, Peggy Liu has worn many hats: computer programmer, management consultant, software product manager, venture capitalist — just to name a few. But after organizing the MIT Forum on the Future of Energy in China five years ago, it was clear where her passion lay: in advancing clean energy. Liu went on to co-found the Joint U.S.-China Collaboration on Clean Energy and was named a 2008 Time magazine Hero of the Environment. Today, as chairperson of JUCCCE, she has a unique vantage point for envisioning a renewable energy-powered world.
Liu will be the featured speaker at Ensia Live on March 27, where she will explore efforts she’s leading to re-imagine prosperity and reshape consumerism in China by building a new “China Dream” that preserves resources for future generations.
