Online Event

Event description
Climate change is the story of our generation, and what defines that story is how we tell it – and the actions we take because of it.

About this Event

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 is 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.

Join us for our series: October 16, 23, and 30, from 1-3 pm ET. Zoom links will be sent prior to each week's event for both the main conversation and breakouts.

We have amazing keynoters we'll engage in conversation:

  • October 16: The Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr., president and founder of the Hip Hop Caucus and its Think 100% climate communications and activism platform, will talk about environmental equity and changing the culture through music and story.
  • October 23: Shirley Collado, president of Ithaca College, will tell her story of leading deep institutional change and advocating for environmental justice.

Register today to ensure you don't miss the 2020 Planet Forward Summit!
