‘A Date With History’ was an opportunity for young people from around the globe to inspire leaders and decision-makers to act boldly and urgently on key issues impacting the future of our planet. Launched Spring of 2012 by TckTckTck together with our partners at Climate Nexus and NRDC, we encouraged global youth ages 13 to 30 to upload video speeches telling the world about the “Future We Want.”

Through the votes of their peers online and a diverse jury of prominent celebrities, environmental activists and thought leaders, one inspiring young visionary was selected to attend the Rio Earth Summit and address the leaders assembled.
