handsaroundtheglobes1I wanted to let you know about an online video repository of sustainability experts, whose inspiration can transform your frustration about the state of our planet into hope and action. It’s called the Spring of Sustainability, and many of the pioneers of sustainability – including Jane Goodall, Bill McKibben, Vandana Shiva, Van Jones, John Robbins, Hazel Henderson, Frances Moore Lappe’ talks are recorded here — all sharing insights and tools you need to connect and collaborate with others to create a sustainable and thriving world.

Good for students, adults and everyone interested in how sustainability is practiced around the world. Here’s the link:  Sustainability Leadership

While it was recorded in 2014, the information is still available and free. By signing up, you get access to all the videos so that you can watch them and be inspired. I’ve been working at the intersection of education, environmental stewardship, and consciousness for several years, and to my knowledge this is now the only online location you can access this kind of information for free. Students especially might benefit from an assignment to watch these videos. Forward to all folks who might be interested.

Together, let’s do all we can to create a sustainable planet for ourselves, our children and grandchildren, and for all generations to come.

After 22-y of self-funding social improvement projects, I can say that if the wealth holders in our society would spend 40-60% of their income on social improvement projects, these islands would be a much nicer place. Whether it is decreasing entropy, building community resilience, giving voice-to-the-voiceless, or making visible-the-invisible, my teams envision, innovate, and demonstrate community improvements, through inspiration, education, lean action and community synergy, using both local and global campaigns, focused in the areas of conservation, agriculture, and energy innovation. For several years I served on the Umematsu and Yasu Watada Lectures on Peace, Social Justice and the Environment, bringing voices like Frances Moore Lappe, David Korten, Richard Heinberg, Helena Norberg Hodge and Dr. Steven Schneider to Honolulu. I've been a participant and social philanthropist in the fabric of the islands, via for-benefit, for-profit and faith networks. Worked my way to a masters degree with distinction in Sustainable Development Leadership from Hawaii Pacific University. Change agent, strategic sustainability advisor, and inspirational public speaker, I've spoke to audiences across Hawaii's business, government, and educational sectors. Mixing a friendly approach, a professional curiosity, and downbeat humor, in my presentations, shift happens. At HawaiiReporter.com, I writes about science, climate change, spirituality, and systems, and how these scale to social improvement.
