Earth Optimism Summit Announces Student Video Competition

February 2, 2017 | Lauren K. Ward

The Earth Optimism global mission celebrates a focus-shift in the dialogue about conservation and sustainability, from problems and losses to hope and solutions. The Earth Optimism Summit, April 21-23, 2017, is being hosted by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC, with partner events around the world. Thought leaders, scientists, artists, environmentalists, civic leaders, and other conservation-minded citizens will gather to share stories of conservation success and discuss solutions for addressing climate change and biodiversity sustainability. The power of media, including video shorts, is an important part of this storytelling celebration
