How To Empower Citizens And Communities To Act On Climate Through Social Entrepreneurship

You voted for this

More than 6 out of 10 Americans are concerned that climate change will personally affect them or a member of their family. In recent years the consequences of climate change have become impossible to ignore, causing billions of dollars in damages and dozens in deaths last year in the US alone.

When the federal government and traditional industries fail to act on climate, individual citizens and communities feel powerless to make a real difference in addressing climate change.

However, there is growing movement of social entrepreneurs who are empowering local city and everyday citizens with solutions to act.

Hear lesson learned and strategies from entrepreneurs developing solutions, like local city food waste upcyling, carbon offset purchases at gas stations, legal support for civil disobedience, and mobile apps for electric vehicle charging, to support and get involved in the climate movement.
