      Intelsat is providing global communications services for The Climate Reality Project’s “24 Hours of Reality: Be the Voice of Reality” live broadcast. Intelsat will help uplink video featuring performances and leaders from around the world using its Intelsat 19, Intelsat 20, Intelsat 34, Intelsat 905 and Galaxy 17 satellites.

      The live event, hosted by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, starts today. During each hour of the program, regional climate experts will highlight stories of climate activism in six regions, including North America, Oceania, the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and Central and South America. The event will also feature conversations with political leaders, thought leaders, climate scientists and cultural icons, as well as musical performances and short films.

      In its seventh year of supporting The Climate Reality Project, Intelsat will use its globalized network, which includes its satellite network and IntelsatOne terrestrial services. Intelsat will contribute video from multiple locations worldwide, and support the broadcast of the event to more than 100 countries via traditional platforms such as Telemundo, France 24, SKY, PhoenixTV, and iHeartRadio.
