Does nature have a marketing problem?
Join the Impact Hub Academy and the creator behind viral comedy series “Nature Rx” (over 40 million views), writer/director Justin Bogardus as we dive in to this spicy topic.
Justin believes conservation needs a fun-filled kick in the pants. (we agree)
In this humorous talk, Justin wonders aloud if the biggest struggle facing the future of conservation is poor branding and messaging.
Are we telling the wrong story about the human relationship to nature?
With a unique and creative perspective, Bogardus seeks to inspire new territory in saving and protecting the environment – by flipping the usual stories we tell ourselves about nature on their head.
Join Bogardus for a hearty dose of fun and inspiration around galvanizing the environmental movement to reach beyond the usual suspects and preach beyond the choir: humor and the outdoors – two timeless prescriptions for whatever ails you.
Justin Bogardus is a filmmaker and speaker. His film career was rooted in New York City for over a decade, producing award-winning documentaries and television about wrongful convictions and post-conviction DNA exonerations. In 2014, he moved to Boulder, Colorado to open his own production companies. The following year, Bogardus launched the award-winning NatureRx series (Mountainfilm 2015), a hilarious satire that explores the cure to society’s ills: a deeper connection and relationship to nature for the betterment of the planet and people everywhere. The effectiveness and innovativeness of Bogardus and his storytelling has led to several worldwide speaking engagements about how to better market nature and social causes. In 2016 Bogardus was a featured speaker at TEDxVail, Wisdom 2.0 (sharing the main stage with Russell Simmons, Prince Ea, Eileen Fisher, Ram Das, Jack Kornfield, Jon Cabot-Zinn, CEOs of Google/Yahoo), and the IUCN World Conservation Congress (sharing the stage with Jane Goodall, speaking about next generation engagement), along with other speaking engagements.
