Moderators:

  • Stuart Scott, Executive Director of ScientistsWarning.org and ScientistsWarning.tv. Stuart is a long-time eco-strategist, having contributed significantly to last year's COP24 (UN Climate Change Conference) by conducting interviews with prominent figures such as Greta Thunberg and Noam Chomsky.

Some questions our panel will explore...

  • How can we create and channel a sense of urgency into meaningful action?
  • What types of actions can you take to make the biggest impact in the amount of time we have?
  • Should disparate organizations align behind single targets to drive focused change?
  • What is the role of personal choice-making (i.e., becoming vegan, not having kids) versus efforts to create system-level change? (i.e., the Green New Deal)
