How to Make Messages Stick and Mobilize People to Take Action: Global Commons Dinner at the National Academy of Sciences

On October 12, Gary Knell had the pleasure of speaking at the Global Commons Dinner held in the Great Hall of the National Academy of Sciences. He began by acknowledging two influential National Geographic Explorers who also took part in the gathering, Tom Lovejoy and Sylvia Earle, each explorer earning hearty applause. Tom has devoted his life to helping us better understand the Amazon Rainforest and Sylvia has shown us why it is vital for us to save our oceans. He spoke to National Geographic’s presence at IUCN Word Conservation Congress and how it was a real privilege to be among leading conservation organizations.
