The Summit gathered people from many of the world's religions and wisdoms to discuss fundamental moral questions related to climate change, such as why we should care, how one can show one cares, and how to inspire the world to care. The Summit also saw the launch of the "Why Do I Care?" campaign, which has so far garnered over 1,200 participants.
