Awareness to Action: Innovate for a Green Future
On April 29, 2020, in celebration of World Intellectual Property Day the U.S. Copyright Office hosted “Awareness to Action: Innovate for a Green Future.”
The 2020 World Intellectual Property Day theme put innovation—and the IP rights that support it—at the heart of efforts to create a green future, because the choices we make each day shape our future. Through this event, we observed how creators—who through the copyright system can earn a living from their work—play a key role in creating a vision of a green future and its untold benefits.
The event featured:
- Meaghan Parker, executive director at the Society of Environmental Journalists;
- Roshan Patel, media producer at Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute; and
- Sean Fitzgerald, nature and conservation photographer.
