The two-day event is broadly inclusive, covering the full range of sustainability issues such as land use, agriculture, food security, biodiversity, biological preservation and conservation, freshwater and watersheds, population, poverty, environmental justice, climate, greenhouse gas removal, energy, the built environment, oceans, and sea-level rise, to name just some.

The event is bringing in 40 change makers from all over the world. These change makers include representatives from five different areas of human organization: entrepreneurs, innovative established firms, NGOs, policymakers, and leaders in health & education. Some of these change makers deal with the technical aspects of climate adaptation. Others with behavioral adaptation and change. Still others focus on issues of ethical importance in the area of environmental justice. But across all this diversity, the participants share a common concern about the world’s great sustainability challenges, especially as these challenges are manifesting in the poorest and least developed areas of the world.
