All of us alive today will determine the future of life on this planet. What we do or fail to do will affect generations to come. Will we have been Good Ancestors?
This is the moment to embrace collaboration, compassion and community – the inherent qualities of female leadership which have been missing at decision-making tables worldwide. All can embody these qualities to create the changes needed, with the urgency the crisis demands.
Thank you to everyone who joined our three globally recognized youth activist leaders: co-hosts, Xiye Bastida, Jerome Foster II, Alexandria Villasenor and other extraordinary presenters and performers for an intergenerational and illuminating evening.

These men and women global climate leaders: activists, journalists, scientists, indigenous leaders, business champions, farmers and innovators shared what they are doing, what you can do and how leadership that embraces these feminine qualities holds a powerful key to solve the climate crisis.
Inspired by the recent collection of essays in All We Can Save, the event celebrated and amplified the unique voices and approaches of women leading the climate movement and men who recognize and manifest that powerful and practical difference.
The science is clear; we must rapidly and radically take action to save the planet for future generations. We have the solutions. Discover, re-ignite and add your passion to solving the climate crisis.
The only way we rise is together.
