How Hollywood meets climate change

On April 15, Green Cross held an exclusive event in collaboration with Impact Economy, on the role of media in raising awareness of global environmental and social issues. David Gelber and Joel Bach, creators and executive producers of The Years of Living Dangerously Project: a multi-part TV series and internet project on climate change, were in Europe to start preparing a second series that will include more content from this part of the world (the first series focused heavily on the United States). They were joined by Maria Wilhelm, Executive Producer and President & CEO of CAMERON Companies, and Maximilian Martin, European Partner and Member of the Years Advisory Board.

The moderator of the panel debate was Green Cross International’s Vice President and former Mayor of Geneva Pierre Muller. A short primer on the series was followed by a lively discussion about ways of spreading awareness about climate change issues, and examples of stories to tell about dealing with and overcoming today’s challenges. Gelber and Bach’s previous series demonstrated the problem – for the next series, they intend to lay out the best solutions.
