THE STORY OF OUR GENERATION
Climate change is the story of our generation, and what defines that story is how we tell it – and the action we take because of it.
All around the world, new voices are emerging as powerful changemakers who are running against the clock to prevent irreversible shifts to our global climate. These are the new activists, innovators, policymakers and others who inspire audiences to take action in their local communities.
But, how do they drive their audiences to this critical point?
At the 2020 Planet Forward Virtual Summit, learn how the best environmental change agents use storytelling to transform their audiences from passive listeners to engaged doers.
With the goal in mind of keeping our 2020 event as interactive and engaging as possible in a virtual environment, we've broken up our usual daylong Summit to 2-hour windows on three consecutive Fridays: October 16, 23, and 30, from 1-3 pm ET. A Zoom link will be sent prior to each week's event.
Learn why inspirational stories are the most motivational - and effective - to drive action.
Learn the very best in communication techniques that you can apply immediately to your environmental stories.
Learn how you can create a movement for the planet on your campus and in your community.
Connect with leading journalists, policymakers, innovators and more and apply for exclusive internship and job opportunities.
4 REASONS YOU SHOULD ATTEND THE SUMMIT
Here's what's happening each week:
October 16: This summer we saw a collision of climate issues, the global pandemic, and our country’s racial reckoning. We look at the path ahead in an exclusive interview with the Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., president and founder of the Hip Hop Caucus and its Think 100% climate communications and activism platform. We could not have a better guest to speak with us about the climate emergency, climate justice, our planet, and the future.
October 23: How do institutions create meaningful change? Some higher education institutions are leading the way on sustainability. We look at the process of making broad changes to address past injustices — and to reduce facilities’ impact on our planet.
October 30: Despite our new, mostly virtual world, speaking together as one voice has never held more power. Organizations are listening and changing their approaches to meet consumer demands. We look at how the power of change lies in our hands, as we move the planet forward.
