BEVERLY HILLS, CALIFORNIA, USA, March 16, 2023 / -- The Climate Change Forum, a global confab that brings together a triad of top-tier lenders, unicorns and rainmakers seeking to invest in the most advanced innovations, laser edge science and environmentally sustaining developments lit down for the first time in the Western Hemisphere this past March 11 in Beverly Hills, California. New to the CC-Forum's Green Carpet was a continency of ‘Hollywood Royalty’ gracing the proceedings. Attended by the 'Usual Suspects' the tri-annual convergence of high net worth individuals were joined by family offices, royalty, thought leaders and inventors of planet preserving technology. The world's most renowned classical performers from Placido Domingo to Forbes Magazine Entertainer of the Year’, Alan Landry and symphonic orchestras all have graced the stage.

Unspooling in the lush Verandah of the luxurious Beverly Hills Peninsula Hotel on Saturday, March 11th the must-attend Green Carpet Event served as a lead-up to the 95th Annual Academy Awards. Philanthropist and Founder of the Annual 'Art 4 Peace Awards', Dame Munni Irone accompanied by former Beverly Hills Mayor and film studio executive, the Honorable John A. Mirisch, observed, "traditionally the CC-Forum is a dignified display of European style decorum, sartorial elegance and collaboration similar to what transpired at this year's Oscar Fest the following night”.

Both events made gallant strides to rectify past societal mishaps. The duo served up a reinvigorating elixir to counter the malaise of a post pandemic planetary meltdown. Whereas the past few Oscars have been rife with accusations of racial elitism, a mass exodos from movie theaters to be replaced by the Tic Toc ™ obsessed and culminating in the ‘Slap!’ heard around the world; "The Academy Awards and CC-Forum herald a rousing return to ‘That’s Entertainment!', enthused Kacie Schweikhardt and Andrea Guardino of VIPictures & Company.

CC-Forum's debut in the America's was first announced at the 7th Edition in Bahrain, February 2022 and again at the three-day Summit in London’s iconic Dorchester in October. The California steering committee of the inaugural Made in America edition grappled with their own white knuckle, edge of the seat affaire. Actor and personal trainer, Michael Torchia, Diane Kelly of DK Productions, Douglas Hardin of and the grand dame of PR Ilene Proctor concurred pre-production included countless meetings, high stakes negotiations, fizzled plans, date and venue changes. Self-financed endeavor are not for the faint of heart whether indie movie making or moving the needle toward a more just and verdant planet. Uflappable and with a will of steel Max Studennikoff - the CC-Forum Founder and ringleader led the charge with a clarion cry "the show must go on".

One may aptly describe the Academy Awards 2023 as a “Return to the Classics”. Taking a nod from the CC-Forum, Variety writer Owen Leiberman observed the Oscars were “calming, tasteful, reassuring”. Audiences in the Dolby Theater, viewing parties at home and guests of the CC-Forum alike were served up two refreshing bonafide celebrations. The world’s preeminent awards show and top-tier ‘Ecocentric’ confab gave assurances that the future is not all doom-saying punditry. To the contrary, both events embraced balance, intention and hope. They were inclusive, joyful and crossed cultural divides with a finely tuned choreographed leap!

Boasting a glam gathering of 130+ influencers including UHNWs, thought leaders, investors, start-ups, royalty and celebrities each attendee was and is uniquely aligned with the CC-Forum's mission, “that is, to make the world a better place through sustainable investment,” confirmed Green Alliance Int’l Ambassador at Large, Holmes Stoner from his perch in Marina Del Rey, California. Brainstorming sessions unspooled on stage interspersed with keynotes and screenings of Oscar-winning and Oscar-nominated documentaries focusing on Climate Change, pro-action and social impact followed by moderated Hollywood style panels.

An exploration of scintillating topics included ‘Conscious Capitalism’, ‘the Role of Film and Entertainment Industries in Resolving Sustainability Issues’, ‘Racial and Gender Diversity’, ‘Investment in Preserving Biodiversity’, as well as, ‘Tech for Good’.

The discussions were followed by a five-star gourmet meal, rich networking reception and an entertainment programme featuring Alan Landry, ‘The Voice of Monaco’ gracing the stage direct from a previous engagement in Cannes on the Cote-d-Azure and Beverly Hills Sister City.
