The Environmental Media Association has officially announced the speakers and panelists for its 8th annual EMA Impact Summit, which will feature a closing conversation with Hillary Clinton.

Taking place June 4 and 5 at the Pendry West Hollywood, the event unites Hollywood environmentalists with a wide range of innovators, entrepreneurs, creatives and corporations to discuss bringing sustainability to the forefront. Secretary Clinton will join EMA to dive into the devastating effects of climate change on early childhood development and how her work through the Clinton Foundation’s Too Small to Fail initiative is advancing new solutions. She will also focus on climate storytelling from a new frame, expanding on the silent crisis impacting pregnant women and young children.

This year’s EMA Impact Summit will mark the 20th anniversary of the EMA Green Seal program — a sustainable production standard that is now adopted by studios and productions worldwide.
