A Case for Environmental Optimism?

How many last chances have we had to prevent the worst effects of climate change? Can we think positively about our climate future?

As we experience more severe consequences, it may seem counterintuitive to be optimistic. But optimism and hope may be exactly what we need, now more than ever.

Join cultural and communications expert Ian Brunswick and founding Executive Director of the newly formed Smithsonian Conservation Commons and Earth Optimism Summit, Ruth Anna Stolk & Environmental Protection Scientist Jonathan Derham as they explain why an increasing number of researchers, educators, designers and artists are looking at positiveness as a shortcut to achievable environmental solutions.
