As stewards of the Earth, we have an obligation to limit our negative impacts on the ecosystems we inhabit. Unfortunately, we are often unaware of how our decisions and actions affect the planet. In this session, hear from environmental advocates as they describe how public information tools can foster environmental stewardship, and from technologists as they share the digital products they've created to reduce ocean plastic pollution and help the public understand the effects of transportation emissions.  Featuring lightning talks by Esri, IBM, OpenAQ, Georgetown, Rutgers, and American University.
