Star-studded event celebrates nature and young idols at the Disney Kids and Nature Celebration
So 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.
Hosted 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.
