A Call to Action: Inspiring NextGen Leaders to Tackle the Climate Crisis

Tona Rowett July 13, 2022

What does it take to inspire the next generation of leaders to take action on the climate crisis?

Project Drawdown’s Executive Director, Jonathan Foley, leads two Enactus climate action student leaders in a frank discussion on what it takes to inspire the next generation of leaders to advance climate action and use business innovation as a force for good. These university students have implemented top five climate solutions in the 2022 Race for Climate Action, narrowed from a field of 90 entries from 16 countries, and will share how they use experiential education to move beyond talk to action on the world’s toughest challenges.
