Featured Session: We Don’t Have Time — Act on Climate Now

Mar 17, 2022

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Our governments currently spend more than $5 trillion per year supporting fossil fuels. This nonsensical subsidizing of oil, gas and coal is unnecessarily destroying our planet when we have better, cleaner options available to us today. So how do we get our leaders to listen and understand that we must end the subsidies that have led us into our current 6th mass extinction?
 
Join this conversation between the world's largest climate action review platform, We Don't Have Time, and the creatives behind #dontchooseextinction—the campaign that urges world leaders to end all fossil fuel subsidies. The campaign launched in October 2021 and has already reached more than one billion people worldwide. Come hear from us on how everyone has a role to play in confronting the climate crisis, and how we can utilize the power of social media to hold leaders accountable for their actions.
