Andreea Rodinciuc, an analyst, discusses Future 500's Force for Good Forecast 2019, an annual handbook that lists the 10 most important rising trends in social and environmental advocacy.

One of the trends listed in the handbook is Trend #10: The 2020 Opportunity, where they explained how the initial injection of funds would hit the ground this year and spur escalating advocacy and action.

Rodinciuc notes how more money is flowing in to fund climate advocacy and activism.
