Jackson Wild: YOUTH v. GOV

Jackson Wild Conference and Film Festival: YOUTH v. GOV, on the Front Lines of Climate Justice

Saturday, October 24, 2020 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM CDT (2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EDT)

Duration: 60 min

Formerly the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival & Conservation Summit, the Jackson Wild Summit is an extraordinary annual convening where collaboration and innovation thrive, and new ideas are launched. Cross-disciplinary conversations on the critical issues facing our planet set the stage for strategic partnerships that happen nowhere else, as participants work together to address conservation and environmental challenges.

This panel features the Director and characters of the soon-to-be-released feature documentary YOUTH v GOV, discussing how young people are fighting to protect their constitutional rights and holding their government accountable for its role in causing the climate crisis.

Description: YOUTH v GOV is the story of America’s youth taking on the world’s most powerful government. Armed with a wealth of evidence, twenty-one courageous leaders file a ground-breaking lawsuit against the U.S. government, asserting it has wilfully acted over six decades to create the climate crisis, thus endangering their constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property. If these young people are successful, they will not only make history, they will change the future.
