We are so thrilled to be joining our partners at The POP Movement at their International Conference and Festival this year!
What is the POP Movement?
The POP (Protect Our Planet) Movement is a non-profit organization that promotes and mobilizes global action and aims to empower the youth to have active participation in addressing issues of climate change faced by our planet.
What is the event about?
The aim of the POP Festival, being organized on June 5-10, 2021 (via Zoom), is to showcase youth-led climate actions from different parts of the world and serve as a platform for different stakeholders to network, build relationships and cross-learn. Students, teams, or institutions demonstrating exemplary action in the broad fields of environment and sustainability will be invited to present their initiatives before a global audience. This will also be an opportunity providing the participants with online/offline visibility, mentorship for project implementation, and networking support to raise funds.
How will Dream Tank be participating?
Some of our members have been invited to participate in a session called “Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurship in Climate Action”.
They will be talking about Dream Tank’s virtual, collaborative workspace, gaming, kindness, empathy, and values.
It will be a 40 minute conversational session followed by Q&A with the audience.
DATE: JUNE 9. 2021
TIME: 8:00 AM MST
DURATION: 1 HOUR
SESSION: INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY LEADING ENTREPRENEURSHIP TO TAKE CLIMATE ACTION
Climate action represents the Sustainable Development Goal #13, and it is part of our “SUSTAINING” #sdg tribe. Taking action about the climate change our planet is facing is one of the main points to take into consideration in order to thrive and maintain the development of our kind throughout the following years.
Rising temperatures and statistics of the effects of Climate Change are experiencing very concerning numbers and data for the last 50 years, comparing this deteriorating process to effects that took hundred of years to take place in the past.
Where does Dream Tank come in?
We have developed workshops, accelarators and many programs during these years focusing on Social Entrepeneurship for a Sustainable World. We have been invited to a session that will include the factors of INNOVATION, TECHNOLOGY and ENTREPENEURSHIP connected with Climate Action, and here’s where we come in.
Not only these factors, but the importance of the youth in designing, brainstorming and creating strategies to attack this problematic are core values we believe in (and act upon) every day at #DreamTank. And we look forward to contributing to this discussion and spreading the message!
