The theme of TEDxCityofSanFrancisco is Hope in a Heated Planet. As we witness the increased impacts of climate change it can be difficult to feel optimistic, but what we have is hope—hope in people, hope in solutions, and hope in our ability to take collective action. It’s action that gives rise to hope. Hope is a conviction that one can act to make things better. As Greta Thunberg says, “When we start to act, hope is everywhere.”
