As an entrepreneur, writer and subject of this video from Entrepreneur Network parter MaRS Discovery District, Margaret Atwood has a few insights on the importance of a clean planet and the questions women can ask to further the cause.

Atwood shares that in order to achieve a cleaner world, its inhabitants must respect the mission and declare themselves willing to pitch in. Female cleantech entrepreneurs and women interested in keeping a clean planet can benefit by asking questions that are different than others. Considering the welfare of children and the lives of those not yet on the planet is a perspective on a clean planet women can consider. This is in contrast to thinking about money as having a greater importance than a cleaner planet.

Atwood participates in the Women in Cleantech Challenge as a judge. Click the video to hear more from Atwood and MaRS Discovery District.
