The Storyteller's Journey:
Navigating Crisis, Seeking Solutions


In every crisis, we face a journey.

But the story of the climate crisis is still unfolding. How will we navigate it?

What stories will we tell? Who are the heroes of this story?

And what are the tools, solutions, and innovations that will see us through?

The 2022 Planet Forward Summit will bring together some of the most accomplished advocates, experts, students, and storytellers. They'll provide unique insight on the innovations we need and the narratives we can use to prompt action.

One of our heroes, Tom Lovejoy — the "godfather of biodiversity" and a beloved friend of Planet — left us recently. Tom showed us that species in the diverse web of life depend on one another to survive. And so does humanity.

We need diversity of thought, approach, background, and knowledge to collaborate as we combat climate change and create a more sustainable society. We need to use powerful narratives to drive meaningful change.

We are dedicating the 2022 Planet Forward Summit to Tom's enduring work on behalf of biological diversity and the Amazon rainforest. Discover how you can raise your voice and communicate the challenges, strategies, and efforts to help move the planet forward.

  • Al Roker, legendary broadcaster, gave his pointers for compelling climate communication and reaching your audience.

  • Kate Gallego, Mayor of Phoenix, Arizona, discussed her efforts to make Phoenix the country's first "heat-ready city."
