Donna Moodie - Keynote Speaker
Earth Talk presentation: Everyday Environmentalism
The average person can be a champion for the movement against the Climate Crisis; Donna believes that activists do not have to belong to a certain class, socio-economic or educational background. She emphasizes that welcoming people to the movement who are just beginning to understand what their role is is incredibly valuable. Donna will highlight acts of preservation, conservation, the economy, and resilience and hopes to share the story of a few contributors. It's a people's movement and we can ignite growth.
