SAN FRANCISCO, April 14, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Live from Earth (www.livefromearth.net) is a worldwide online gathering happening April 17-22, 2023, featuring broadcasts that will highlight innovators who are at the forefront of helping solve global environmental challenges. This inspiring event will be broadcast on the new carbon-neutral social media streaming platform PORTL (www.portl.com).

The event feed will also be delivered on YouTube and Facebook through a global coalition of broadcasting partners.
Background: Humanity is at a crossroads. The recent IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) just released an ominous report on the health of our planet. Yet simultaneously, we are witnessing a groundswell of organizations and individuals who are bringing forth actionable solutions that are empowering, hopeful, and inspiring. As people self-organize to address these challenges, the need for a social platform dedicated to this cause of healing our planet has become imperative. It is always the artists, the creatives, and the community-weavers who bring about needed changes for the collective and PORTL is providing that platform. Live from Earth highlights the collaborative efforts that are possible when tech platforms allow individuals to organize and mutually support each other towards positive social and environmental change.

About PORTL: PORTL is the new carbon-neutral social media streaming platform. We are an online platform for content creators to monetize and distribute their content, engage their community, and earn money.
Creators can lock live streams, audio, video, and photos behind a paywall giving subscribers access for a monthly fee.
The platform provides easy-to-use live streaming, community engagement tools, virtual audience window, dynamic live chat, direct messaging, robust social media features, display network, and more.
PORTL was created by a team of festival producers and artists to combat the revenue losses creators have suffered over the past decade; copyright infringement, low revenue for internet broadcast, the disappearance of products like books, CDs, DVDs, and now the disappearance of in-person events.
PORTL will provide a new revenue stream for thousands of content creators that are seeking an appropriate and equitable platform to monetize their creativity, media, and influence.
