    Event description

    A Hopeful Horizon for Climate: Bridging Communications, Cognition, and the Science of Hope

    Climate change is the crisis of our time, but also an opportunity. Join us for an insightful evening with Molly Kawahata, an award-winning speaker, strategist, advocate, and former Climate Advisor at the Obama White House.  

    Kick off the evening by watching a modified film screening of The Scale of Hope, a Patagonia film, which depicts Molly’s personal and professional life, followed by a keynote from Molly herself. We will explore how to foster hope and catalyze climate action by bridging communications, human cognition, and the science of hope.  

    This discussion will provide attendees with actionable strategies to spread hope and become catalysts of climate action in their communities. 

    All proceeds directly benefit Park City Community Foundation's Climate Fund.

    Please contact us if the ticket fee is a barrier for you to be able to attend.
