Join us for a conversation with youth climate leaders, moderated by former Vice President and Climate Reality Project founder Al Gore, to learn how to move their demands forward with the urgency required by the global climate crisis. We'll also hear a solutions-based presentation by Dr. Katharine Wilkinson from Project Drawdown based on the book Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming. New York City Council Member Costa Constantinides will join us to highlight local solutions, and Blue Planet Alliance founder Henk Rogers will provide a global outlook. Together we'll provide the framework for identifying existing solutions and policies that are already working and need to be scaled up quickly. Sponsored by Blue Planet Alliance and presented in partnership with 350NYC, The Climate Reality Project, Drawdown NYC, and Pachamama Alliance. Participating groups include Fridays for Future, Earth Uprising, Earth Guardians, Sunrise Movement, Zero Hour, Extinction Rebellion Youth US, and more.
