The celebration was put together to give kudos to heroes and heroines making
efforts to save the earth, as well as organizations dedicated to helping kids
get involved with nature.
what exactly went down? On Friday, the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund
Awards Ceremony not only had a speech by Robert A. Iger, The Walt Disney
Company’s Chairman and CEO, but the McClain sisters also took to the stage,
performing their hit song “Rise,” featured in Disnynature’s upcoming Chimpanzee (in theaters April 20), which
also made its world premiere that day.
by Radio Disney’s prime celebrity, Ernie D, the Disney Friends for Change Youth
Summit was then held on Saturday for the stars to help the leaders in progress
be inspired to think creatively and focus on solutions for positive impact
throughout the world. They took part in discussions, panels and workshops to
picture the future of their planet and talk about efforts for conservation,
walking away with tonsa fresh ideas.
