#EarthOptimism Stories of Hope - Evening plenary
Sat 22 April 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
#EarthOptimism Stories of Hope is a series of inspiring talks from around the world held over 6 sessions. Sir David Attenborough and an impressive line-up of other leading conservationists, popular naturalists and celebrity figures will present stories of success throughout the day. Jane Goodall, primatologist, conservationist and UN Ambassador for peace, will start with a message of hope, and renowned Harvard psychologist Steven Pinker will close by examining how society is changing for the better. Running parallel to the talks will be an activity-packed ‘Solutions Fair’, where you can find out how you can make a real difference for nature by getting out into wild places and by making through simple changes in your home and in what you eat. This is your chance not just to learn and share, but also to step up and join those who are making 2017 a positive year for our planet.
