Climate Change

For more than 20 years Hollywood, Health & Society has provided the movie and TV entertainment industry with access to top experts for storylines on health, safety and security—reaching millions of people worldwide. That effort extends into environmental health and the impact of climate change, in past partnerships with organizations such as the Skoll Foundation, Climateworks Foundation, Grantham Foundation, and The Aileen Getty Foundation.

What You Can Do

There are lots of positive ways to contribute to a cleaner, greener world. Every step, no matter what size, makes a difference. It all adds up, and the more who participate the closer we get to a critical mass.
