This whole climate thing is scary, right? I’m worried. But, working in the climate space for the last 5 years, I’ve had the opportunity to meet dedicated, smart, passionate people doing truly innovative work in addressing our climate emergency.
There are so many scientists, reachers, policy makers, community organizers, and activists on the front lines doing the hard work. They are making huge strides.
Don’t get sucked into this whole doom & gloom narrative. It’s bullshit. Yes, things are fucked and it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
Temperatures have risen 1.2ºC on average. That means drier conditions…
The Climate Designers Party Program will be full of cutting edge leadership concepts and the skills you need to implement them.
We’re putting our flag in the ground and declaring that saving the planet is gonna be engaging.

Say it with us, “No more DOOM & GLOOM.” We don’t know who decided sustainability conversations had to be b-o-r-i-n-g and d-e-p-r-e-s-s-i-n-g, but we’re droppin’ the mic on that and peacin’ out like the cops just busted up our 8th grade game of spin the bottle.

There are a ton of solutions to the climate crisis we hear about all the time — recycling, reducing air travel, transitioning to renewable energy.
There are other interesting solutions we don’t hear a lot about. One of those is biochar — when we talk to people who understand the value of biochar, they are ALL ABOUT BIOCHAR.
Today we want to introduce you to Henrietta Moon, the CEO & Co-founder of Carbo Culture, one of the leading producers of biochar, and find out what is so exciting about this innovative carbon technology.
Carbo Culture has developed a breakthrough method…

It’s been one year since launching Climate Designers, a hub for designers and creative professionals from all industries, committed to using our creative skills for climate action. We’ve come a long way from a simple landing page website and an email sign up box.
The idea behind this project started with random conversations with colleagues and mentors while at at the same time, my friends were calling me the “climate designer guy”. This title got me and my business parter thinking,
“We can’t be the only designers working on climate, right?”
The past twelve months have proven our hunch —…
A few years ago we pledged to dedicate our creative skills to the organizations working to make an impact on our climate crisis. The climate crisis is not separate from the COVID-19 crisis or the systemic racism that enables police brutality. We are in a crisis inside a crisis inside a crisis and we can’t keep quiet about Black Lives Matter, saying it’s not our fight, as many in the climate movement have been inclined to do over the years.
Many of us see the Black Lives Matter protests and wonder why we don’t see this kind of urgency about…
“Earth Day 2020 will be far more than a day. It must be a historic moment when citizens of the world rise up in a united call for the creativity, innovation, ambition, and bravery that we need to meet our climate crisis and seize the enormous opportunities of a zero-carbon future. Marking 50 years of action, Earth Day campaigns are intended to activate at least a billion people worldwide to meet Earth Day’s 2020 theme of climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most…
We just got back from a whirlwind tour of 3 climate-focused conferences; SOCAP19, Verge19, and RES19. In this episode, Marc and Sarah contrast and compare the three crowds and discuss patterns and trends in today’s climate-action movement. We bring up questions like…
