TEDx Plattsburgh 2023 Virtual Countdown Event
IMPACT - Leadership for an Impactful Climate Action

Are we missing the significant role of important groups in climate change that may change the game of success?

Governments and global leaders are busy seeking solutions to climate change, but are they involving enough the voice of this group?
What is this group about?

SMEs from around the world, driven by WOMEN, YOUTH, and DIVERSITY, are thriving and getting traction, driven by a new generation of entrepreneurs that want to participate and have an impact on climate change.

- Women Leadership has a unique advantage in bringing this Approach to life as women leaders have been shown by research that they are more empathetic, socially responsible, and transformative.

- Youth and young persons (from all ages) often come with a culture of creativity, innovation, and thinking out of the boxes, and particularly among students, that can be supportive of new ideas for transformational change.
Youth is a driving force for change via new patterns in this new world with different dynamics for success after COVID-19.

- Diversity is behind success AND progressiveness, equity, equality, and inclusiveness in both entrepreneurship and climate action. Having these applied to climate entrepreneurs would generate a powerful multiplicator of the impact.

Human-made crises need human-made solutions, including all pillars of human skills – cognitive, affective, physical, and … social- along with equal opportunities for all leaders, regardless of gender, age, and position.

And that is what we are missing when it comes to Persistent, Passionate Action for Sustainability Goals: Bottom-Up, Inclusive, Multifaceted Approach.

And now is the time for the new generation of entrepreneurs to enter the fray and accelerate Climate Action.
 Are you one of those entrepreneurs?
 Are you one of those who believe in WOMEN, YOUTH, DIVERSITY is the missing piece of the success to have a Greener,
Healthier as well as a More Peaceful and Fairer World?
 Are you one of those who want to support a new generation of entrepreneurs for Climate Action?
 Are you one of those who say `YES ` to Persistent, Passionate Action for Sustainability Goals
