CROWDSOURCING SUSTAINABILITY

My TEDx Interview on all things climate

by | December 4, 2020

 

Two things for you this week.

First, an enormous thank you to everyone who has donated to Crowdsourcing Sustainability so far!

I am so grateful for your help to keep this work going and our impact growing. Y’all rock 🙂

Also, to those of you who tried to donate but weren’t able to – my bad. There was a minor tech hiccup that is now fixed.

So if you tried last week and couldn’t, or if you missed last week’s newsletter but would like to support this work – please do. Our goal to start is to get 100 monthly donors!

Second, I was invited to do an interview at TEDx Archivorum as a part of TED’s Countdown initiative to help accelerate climate solutions. I think you’ll enjoy it!
