The Smithsonian Institution, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Cambridge Conservation Initiative are hosting coordinated Earth Optimism Summits in Washington DC, San Francisco and Cambridge (UK) on April 23-25, 2020 (the 50th anniversary of Earth Day) with global sister events in multiple countries. At the intersection of nature and culture, the goal of the year-long Earth Optimism initiative is to change the narrative “from doom and gloom, to optimism and opportunity” through highlighting innovative, science-based success stories in conservation and sustainability. With an inclusive conservation message that emphasizes solutions and problem solving, like-minded organizations are encouraged to join the digital movement (#EarthOptimism) as well as organize sister events in their country or community. Themes include (but are not limited to):  Species and Habitat/Ecosystems, Transportation, Sustainable Infrastructure, Food and Waste, Fashion and Beauty, Arts and Culture, Youth leadership, Creativity and Design, Sustainable Financing, Environmental/Human Health and Science Diplomacy. For more information please visit:
