One of the main goals of Smithsonian's Earth Optimism Project is to change the conversation about conservation. To do this we start by sharing success stories of today. In 2017, we held the Earth Optimism Summit where people gathered in Washington, D.C.to tell their conservation success stories in person. In 2018, we wantedeveryone to participate in sharing and conversing. That's why we hosted #EarthOptimism2018 and have continued the workshop after Earth Day 2018to keep the#EarthOptimism momentum going.We're using Twitter to share current conservation success projects and stories in the making. Conservationists of all levels will have the opportunity to engage in the discussion. #EarthOptimism is a chance for you to interact withpeople around the world on social media to identify, share, and support conservation projects and conservation success stories.
