Celebrate Earth Day all week in a free online event open to all

DENVER - April 3, 2024 - PRLog -- In honor of Earth Day, Green Team Academy presents the 5th Annual Earth Week Summit. From April 22 to 27, this six-day online event unites changemakers from around the world.

"Many people feel powerless when they hear about climate change and other environmental and humanitarian challenges," said Joan Gregerson, Director of Green Team Academy.

"We invite people to turn that anxiety into action, by believing in their own ideas and abilities," said Gregerson. "During the Earth Week Summit, attendees can hear firsthand how ordinary people from all walks of life are creating extraordinary results by taking action."

The free online event features over 40 speakers from over 10 countries sharing diverse life experiences and expertise, with an emphasis on equity and environmental justice. Topics include agroecology, agroforestry, food justice, air pollution, policy advocacy, and more.

The online keynote address will be delivered by Shannon Francis, Executive Director of Spirit of the Sun, Inc, in Denver, Colorado. Shannon is Hopi and Dineh from the Southwest homelands of Arizona and New Mexico and comes from twelve generations of farmers, ethnobotanists, and seed keepers.

Shannon will guide attendees through an exploration of what it means to be a good ancestor. Looking to Indigenous knowledge and traditional ecological knowledge, Shannon invites participants to reimagine new ways of being, by putting the rights of Mother Earth and rematriation at the forefront in our everyday lives.

On Thursday, April 25, the summit includes a special "Denver Day" featuring Metro Denver area speakers and initiatives from Moms Clean Air Force, GreenLatinos Colorado, Womxn From the Mountain, FrontLine Farming, Denver Public Schools for Climate Action, and Denver's Office of Climate Action, Sustainability and Resiliency.

The event also offers participants a preview of how to participate in the Green Team Academy 2024 International Climate Action Challenge that kicks off in August 2024.
