Turning Up the Volume on Climate Change

Apr 22, 2015 5:55 PM ET

In the wake of our hottest year on record, polar caps melting faster than predicted and even California in the midst of an historic drought, #GlobalCitizenEarthDay turned up the volume on climate change with a star studded free concert featuring Mary J. Blige, Gwen Stefani, Train and Usher.

On this episode of Conscious Living®, we captured highlights from the event including a backstage roundtable during the concert featuring some of the top minds across many industries who met to elevate the dialogue on climate change.

Organized by Earth Day Network and The Global Poverty Project, featured panelists included Connect4ClimateBill McDonough and actor and U.N. Goodwill Ambassador Don Cheadle, who spoke with us about the intersection of climate change, global poverty and human rights.
