This year’s theme—Wildly Resilient—could not be more fitting. Mr. Fair sums it up perfectly:

'Wildly Resilient' evokes such a plethora of thoughts. The first one is the amazing resilience of the natural world to rebound when we stop the negative impacts. When you stop dumping sewage into a bay, that bay springs back to life really quickly. The other is about people—the hidden reserves of people and their ability to stand up when it’s time and put their collective feet down and demand change.

We can't wait to celebrate another memorable evening!
