Why You Should Attend
Our EMA Impact Summit

IMPACT is not about the “what if” of a green economy, it is about showing the world that the green economy is here, and it is working. With a focus on environmental innovations, corporate responsibility, green jobs, and activism, IMPACT is a loudspeaker for solutions. The Summit is where luminaries, innovators, and influencers come together to not only educate and inspire but create actionable plans to save our planet and improve our economy.

The two-day Summit Includes leaders in entertainment, business, education and tech giving keynote speeches, one-on-one talks, and panel discussions. The Summit also includes the popular EMA Future Innovator of the Year Challenge, networking events and more.

Have an idea that could help save our planet? You’re not alone. Join others with a shared passion for making a difference for our environment at the EMA IMPACT Summit this May.
