Keynote
Liz Georges

The Nature Conservancy
Associate Director of Communications for Climate Change Policy, North America

The World Is Our Oyster: How the Right Stories and Storytellers Can Create Change

In 2018, a small group of seven shellfish growers set out to bring their voices to bear on the issue of climate change. Two years, 130+ members in 20 states and one 17-minute documentary later, the Shellfish Growers Climate Coalition has already seen the needle move in unexpected ways on climate action. These unlikely climate change advocates show how the right story, and the right storytellers, can make a difference for our planet. See the film and hear the story from Liz Georges, who has been directing the communications strategy for this effort since its inception, and who leads climate communications strategy for The Nature Conservancy in North America.
