It took a little bit for us to track and get Edward Norton to sit for Dear World, but right after his speech about his crowd funding platform, Crowdrise, he stopped by and participated. He gave an awesome speech and I’m really happy to have him in the collection.

Here is Norton’s bio:

Edward Norton is a two-time Academy Award nominated actor and filmmaker. He is also a committed social and environmental activist who serves on the Boards of: President Obama’s Committee for the Arts and Humanities; Enterprise Community Partners (affordable housing); Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (conservation and community development); the Signature Theater Company; the Friends of the High Line and the Conservation Lands Foundation. He conceived and created the Solar Neighbors program to promote the use of solar in low-income development and he endowed and created the Middle East Peacemakers Fund at Yale University. In 2010, he was appointed by UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon as the United Nations Ambassador for Biodiversity.
