THE STORY OF OUR GENERATION
Details from our 2020 Planet Forward Summit:
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 — emerging as powerful changemakers — 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, our focus was on environmental equity, inclusion, institutional change — and the narratives around them. Learn how the best environmental change agents use storytelling to transform their audiences from passive listeners to engaged doers.
We had amazing keynoters we engaged in conversation
