A diverse group of students, scientists, communicators, innovators, private sector leaders, and policymakers will share inspiring stories of our planet, and learn techniques of effective communication and compelling storytelling.
On Day 2, we will celebrate and reward the best environmental storytelling told by college students by awarding the prestigious Planet Forward Storyfest Awards in front of a live audience. Storyfest 2019 grand prize winners will travel on a 10-day storytelling expedition with eco-tourism pioneers Lindblad Expeditions in August 2019 to the Galápagos.
Led by storytelling platform PlanetForward.org at The George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, the Summit includes major speakers and topics covering challenges and solutions related to food, water, energy, mobility, built environment, biodiversity, and more.
