Did you know that Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world, celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths, and nationalities? Protecting the earth is in everyone’s best interest. It’s a common ground that can unite us to work together to preserve this world for our children. This year for Earth Day, the film “What’s Possible,” which I produced with director Louie Schwatrzberg, was shown at a huge gathering in Washington DC as part of Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day, presented by Global Poverty Project and Earth Day Network.
Timed to coincide with the spring meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund, Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day brought together global policymakers, finance ministers, environment and development NGOs, industry executives and high-profile artists. Together, these world leaders are working to educate and inspire citizens to take immediate action to end extreme poverty and address climate change.
I’m so honored that my film could be a part of this incredible event, and I look forward to increasing awareness and promoting a positive, solutions-based approach to global climate change moving forward.
