Create the world’s largest social broadcast
on the climate crisis.
The climate crisis poses a fundamental threat to everything we love. The impacts are already being felt in many communities and ecosystems worldwide. Water supplies are shrinking, crop yields are dropping, forests are burning, and more-frequent weather extremes have left no country untouched.
When your world is in danger, you’ve got to speak up.
Climate Reality is creating the largest social broadcast to spread awareness on the climate crisis and its solutions. Hosted by former US Vice President Al Gore and featuring an all-star cast of celebrities, popular artists, scientists, business visionaries, and world leaders, this live broadcast travels around the globe to bear witness to the climate crisis unfolding on every continent. It highlights the activists fighting for solutions everywhere from city streets to City Hall. And it shows how we can all speak up and make a difference. Right here. Right now. Right when it matters.

What is a social broadcast?
A social broadcast is when a community of people join together to use their social media channels to air a video or event to their network of friends and followers.
It is different from a regular broadcast because it’s powered by a community of people joining together to bring attention to a live video or event on platforms like Facebook or YouTube.
