Meet the heroes of the climate struggle


The climate crisis is the greatest struggle of our time. All over the world, climate activists are fighting to protect our planet. From major climate demonstrations in Europe to indigenous peoples in the Amazon defending the rainforest and activists in Africa currently feeling the harshest consequences of climate changes.  

Join us for a talk with some of the world's coolest climate activists, providing powerful narratives from the front lines of the climate crisis and providing inspiration for what we can all do. Because we only win the battle for the climate if we fight together.

You can meet:
