#EarthOptimism2018 Digital Event
Below is a summary of our Earth Optimism 2018 digital offerings:
Celebrate Earth Day Week 2018 at #EarthOptimism2018 —A Shared Digital Space for Inspiration and Creativity through Conservation Success Stories!
The inaugural 2017 Earth Optimism Summit in Washington, DC welcomed discussion focused on solutions in conservation—what the best minds, boldest experiments, and most innovative community practices could tell us about how to conserve biodiversity, protect natural resources, and address climate change? Smithsonian’s 2017 event brought together thought leaders, practitioners, pioneering scientists and researchers, environmentalists, artists, civic leaders, industry participants, media, philanthropists, and other conservation-minded citizens.
#EarthOptimism2018: a worldwide digital community storytelling celebration again focused on “what is working” to make positive change happen for humans and nature.
- This FREE MOOC (Massive Online Open Course), hosted on edX.org, is a 5-session workshop focused on identifying conservation success stories and learning to share them on Twitter. The workshop is available to learners across the globe. Use what you learn to spotlight a conservation success story from our Earth Optimism 2017 Summit, or share a new story about an innovative conservation project or program in your community.
Monday, April 16 - Sunday, April 22, 2018: Tell us why you're an Earth Optimist using #ImAnEarthOptimistBecause and #EarthOptimism2018
- Share your conservation success stories. These could be projects you're involved with officially for work, reporting on a story you heard, or something else that you're personally doing. Inspire others and let the world know you're an Earth Optimist with #ImAnEarthOptimistBecause. Be sure to use #EarthOptimism2018, too!
