In the midst of unprecedented climate concern, people are coming together to solve the climate crisis. On Wednesday, September 20, we were proud to host some of the leading actors rising to the challenge. Led by Rachel Kyte, the CEO of Sustainable Energy for All, leading practitioners in design, campaigning, and funding came together to reveal the secrets of their success and share lessons from their biggest mistakes.

Our distinguished panel let us peer behind the curtain to see what it’s like to lead and make change. From catalyzing climate action inside India’s biggest multinational corporation to running a wildly successful climate campaign without ever uttering the words “climate change,” the evening was packed with insights and humor.



The appetite to collaborate, share, and celebrate the solutions has never been so strong. We thank our moderator, Rachel Kyte, and esteemed panelists and partners at the IKEA Foundation, Autodesk Foundation, and What Design Can Do for helping to make it an incredible evening.

Despite the challenging political times, we’re excited by the progress being made all over the world and are inspired to continue to fight for climate solutions everywhere. We hope you will join us.
