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.

SOLD OUT! Watch live here on Facebook or at our website, https://ethical.nyc/event/chooseus-climatestrike/

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 perspective. Together we'll provide the framework for identifying existing solutions and policies that are already working and need to be scaled up quickly.
