Villars 2024

I was involved with two sessions at the Villars Symposium in June 2024.

How Digital Engagement Enables Systems Change

According to the Pew Research Center, 97% of teens in the United States use the internet daily but no data is available as to whether this helps them learn independently or informs their decision making about how to protect our planet.

Join this intergenerational workshop to learn how digital platforms such as ITZA and Mongabay are educating systems thinkers and enabling systems leadership.

Harnessing the Power of our Planet’s Stories

Storytelling is a leadership skill that some argue is more important than coding in the AI era, but how it can also inspire action towards a net zero and nature positive future is less appreciated.

Join this plenary discussion to learn how storytelling through documentary filmmaking and science-based journalism can change the way we think, feel, and act towards safeguarding our planet’s future.
