Ocean Robbins, CEO & Co-Host

Ocean Robbins was born in a log cabin built by his parents, and grew up eating food they grew on the land together. At age 16, he co-founded an organization called YES!(Youth for Environmental Sanity) that he directed for the next 20 years. For more information check out:  http://www.gmosummit.org

Ocean has spoken in person to more than 200,000 students in school assemblies, and he has organized 100+ seminars and gatherings for leadersfrom 65+ nations. Ocean's work has taken him all over the world, where he has seen first-hand the powerful impact of the food we eat - not just on our health, but on people and economies everywhere.

He is author of The Power of Partnership, and co-author, with his dad and colleague John Robbins, of Voices of the Food Revolution. He serves as co-host and CEO of the Food Revolution Network Ocean.

Ocean is the son of John Robbins who was groomed to be the heir to the Baskin-Robbins empire, which was founded by his father. He had money, prestige, and security, along with an ice cream shaped swimming pool in the back yard. So why did John walk away from the money and the power? His conscience was emerging. He simply didn't want to devote his life to selling ice cream after realizing it makes people unhealthy. So he decided to make a change and forge a new path. Over the last 25 years, John's books about healthy eating and healthy living (including blockbuster bestseller Diet for a New America) have sold millions of copies and been translated into more than 30 lang- uages. He has made hundreds of local and national radio and television appearances, spoken in person to hundreds of thousands of people, founded EarthSave International, and received dozens of awards for his work on behalf of healthy people and a healthy planet. With his son and colleague Ocean, John serves as co-host of the Food Revolution Network.
