About the event

Join us for a screening of two films, Beekeeper (USA), and Another World is Possible (Germany).

Following the screening will be a conversation with BYkids Founder & Executive Director Holly Carter and former senior official at the White House, State Department and U.S. Department of Energy David Sandalow, about the power of youth storytelling, story sharing changing the classroom experience, personal stories making global issues relevant and actionable.

In partnership with public television and education innovators, we share the films and their activation resources to help make global issues feel personal, relevant and actionable for millions of students.
Our work serves as a catalyst for change—igniting important conversations and inspiring a new generation of social activists.
