Awareness to Action: Innovate for a Green Future


Join the U.S. Copyright Office for our next discussion in the Copyright Matters lecture series “Awareness to Action: Innovate for a Green Future” held online, in celebration of World Intellectual Property Day on April 29 from 11:00 a.m.- noon eastern time.


The 2020 World Intellectual Property Day theme puts innovation—and the IP rights that support it—at the heart of efforts to create a green future, because the choices we make today will shape our tomorrow. Through this event, we will observe how creators—who through the copyright system can earn a living from their work—can play a key role in creating a vision of a green future and its untold benefits.


Joining the Copyright Office will be

  • Meaghan Parker, executive director at the Society of Environmental Journalists;
  • Roshan Patel, media producer at Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute; and
  • Sean Fitzgerald, nature and conservation photographer.

The event will be held online and is free and open to the public. However, registration is required.
