#EarthOptimism2018 Event

Join people around the world on Twitter (and other social media) to celebrate Earth Day with conservation success stories.

#EarthOptimism2018 is a digital event, primarily held on Twitter that will allow people from all backgrounds and all parts of the globe to come together around the theme of conservation success. This online festival-like experience will allow stories about what is working to be shared by scientists, conservation practitioners, students and the general public. Everyone will be able to learn why positive change happens and how to scale it up and replicate it. There will be scheduled speakers and designated times for moderated discussions as well as unscheduled contributions and open dialogue. The aim is to have everyone be able to learn from, explore, and engage in a captivating, story-telling event that highlights what has been and is being done today to help make our world a better place.Be inspired and empowered - all with a minimal carbon footprint!

This event will be hashtag driven with #EarthOptimism2018 being the main hashtag used. More specific hashtags will be used to help organize the individual topics and sessions within this overall event (ex.: #EOOcean, #EOBird, #EOAfrica – be creative!). To actively participate in this event, a Twitter account will be required. However, an account is not required to view and follow along.

More details and guidelines coming soon.
