On 4-5 December 2017, join ‘24 Hours of Reality’ and be the voice of reality

Every year for a single day, we unite the globe demanding solutions to the climate crisis. Join Al Gore, renowned scientists, business leaders and a star-studded cast as we come together to find our voice on the climate crisis.

You’ve seen the headlines and witnessed today’s reality: fossil fuels are creating a climate crisis all around the Earth. Hurricanes hitting harder. Wildfires burning hotter. Temperatures going up, up, up. You know we must change.

But here’s the good news: we can change. And we will change. People like you all around the world are standing with business, community, and government activists everywhere to make climate solutions a reality.

On 4-5 December 2017, we’re bringing the world together for one full day to tell this incredible story with the global broadcast event 24 Hours of Reality: Be the Voice of Reality. Former US Vice President Al Gore will host a star-studded event that will broadcast around the world.

Twenty-four hours of inspiring stories of regular people taking their future into their hands and taking action on climate.

Twenty-four hours of eye-opening conversations with the business innovators, government leaders, scientists, community voices, and more leading the fight for solutions all around the planet. Names like New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, California Governor Jerry Brown, and World Economic Forum Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab.

Twenty-four hours of electrifying musical performances from some of the great names of pop music and fresh new voices. Artists like Annie Lennox, Belinda Carlisle, Billy Bragg, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Pop, Jason Mraz, Maná, Nile Rodgers, Rag’n’Bone Man, and Young Paris.

Twenty-four hours of inspiration for all of us to be the voice of reality and millions to speak up for the planet we want.

For 24 hours, we’ll travel around the Earth, telling stories of real people making a real difference for the climate. We’ll talk to some of the most interesting and intriguing leaders in every sector of business, activism, policy, and more who are changing how we create energy, power our economies, and live our everyday lives, everywhere from New York to Johannesburg to New Delhi. Along the way, we’ll see stirring performances from today’s most dynamic musicians.

With fossil fuels driving a climate crisis around the world, it’s time to speak up as one planet.

Most important, we’ll show a world moving forward to a clean energy future. And we’ll show you how you can help.

If you’re ready to make a difference and join millions worldwide in speaking up as the voice of reality, join us on 4-5 December. Visit 24hoursofreality.org for the full lineup and program details.
