When Words Aren?t Enough: The Visual Climate Story
Static Preview

While IPCC risk assessments and emission projections can help us understand climate change, they don’t exactly inspire the imagination or provoke a personal response to the crisis. The solution? A growing league of storytellers who use photographs, films and the human experience to breathe life into the cerebral science of anthropogenic climate change. Images can tap into our senses and break down barriers that statistics cannot—how far can they go to inspire a global climate response?

Join us for a conversation on the art of visualizing climate change with filmmaker Céline Cousteau, producer and director Davis Guggenheim, and photographer Cristina Mittermeier.

Financing and Measuring the Circular Economy - Capturing the Opportunity
Static Preview

In this session you will hear about financing and measuring the circular economy: how it helps deliver on climate and other ESG goals, while being a source of better and new growth; how the circular economy financing market has grown steeply across asset classes over the last two years; and how circularity performance can be measured to inform decision making by both business leaders and financiers.

Climate Justice: Radioactive And Toxic Waste, Racism, And Rising Oceans
Static Preview

At the recent Global Training in July 2020, former Vice President Al Gore and the Climate Reality Project continued their call to prioritize and center the environmental justice work of communities of color and indigenous communities. In this spirit, we invite you to learn about and engage with Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice's "We Can't Breathe" campaign in San Francisco's Bayview and Hunters Point (BVHP) neighborhoods, a low-income community of color (33.7 percent African American, 30.7 percent Asian, and 24.9 percent Latinx per the 2010 Census) where residents suffer from high rates of asthma and cancer and where radioactive waste and toxic contamination at the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard Superfund site and multiple other contaminated sites are located.

As one of the lowest-lying points in San Francisco, BVHP will also be first impacted by rising oceans, which have already risen by almost 8 inches as of 2016 and which threaten to create flooding of hazardous and radioactive waste of neighborhoods, transportation infrastructure, and the entire San Francisco Bay, while several hundred new luxury homes have been built next to and possibly on top of radioactive contamination, and 10,000 more homes are planned at the contaminated Shipyard Superfund Site where critics complain that radioactive and toxic cleanup has been marred by fraud and lax standards. Speakers will also discuss the August 25 Car Caravan Protest to San Francisco City Hall for the Bayview Hunters Point Environmental Justice "We Can't Breathe" Campaign.

Onjisay Aki Climate Summit

In June 2017, Knowledge Keepers and environmental leaders from around the world gathered at the Turtle Lodge Central House of Knowledge - in the heart of Turtle Island (North America) - to discuss Indigenous leadership on climate change. Knowledge Keepers shared the changes their communities are experiencing, and discussed the value of their Indigenous Knowledges in providing guidance for humanity in times of climate change. As young Dene leader Lawrence Nayally described, “there is still so much incredible knowledge that our people have that the world has never heard.”

COVID-19 and Climate: Implications for our Food System
Static Preview

August 2020

Will COVID-19 change our food system for good? Increased coronavirus outbreaks in food markets, food plants, and farmworker communities have impacted food access and put a spotlight on food insecurity. Farmers are hurting as supply chains for fresh, perishable foods shrivel. Meanwhile, food banks have seen a surge in demand that has required distribution support from the National Guard.

What does COVID-19 mean for agriculture, our food supply systems — and our diets? Join us for a conversation with Lisa Held, senior reporter at Civil Eats and Karen Ross, secretary of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, on feeding a nation under quarantine.

To stop plastic pollution we need a circular economy for plastic
Static Preview

In July 2020, The Pew Charitable Trusts and SYSTEMIQ released Breaking the Plastic Wave: A Comprehensive Assessment of Pathways Towards Stopping Ocean Plastic Pollution, one of the most analytically robust studies ever produced on ocean plastics. Thought partners were the University of Oxford, University of Leeds, Common Seas, and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

Breaking the Plastic Wave shows that by 2040, if we fail to act, the volume of plastic on the market will double, the annual volume of plastic entering the ocean will almost triple, and ocean plastic stocks will quadruple. This is in line with The Ellen MacArthur Foundation's 2016 analysis, which revealed that in 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean.


The study also confirms that a circular economy for plastic is the only way to address plastic waste and pollution at the source. This is a vision that already unites 850+ organisations through the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment and the Plastics Pact network.
