Season Three

Tune in for our third season of Climate Changemakers. This year, we’re centering artists and creators producing content about the environment and climate crisis in innovative ways. By passing the mic to them, we can together explore how to expand this important conversation through art and media, bringing in people who might not otherwise have participated.

Season Two

In 2021, we returned with another season of Climate Changemakers! For season two, we passed the mic to voices nationwide to hear from our national partners.
