Let’s TALK about the future
Are you ready to get involved?
Welcome to Earth +30
My Earth, Your Earth, Our Earth
Many of us dream of making a difference. Some of us have jobs that do just that. Others spend their free time volunteering for worthwhile causes, giving to individuals and their community. But too many of us do too little, in my opinion. Life is hard, time is short. I get it. Commutes are long, children are demanding. We need our own down time to take a nap, have a beer, go for a walk, spend time with your wife and children. But these days, I am asking you for more, if even for a couple of minutes or hours. I truly believe we live in very dangerous times. Perhaps I am overly negative, but in this case, I do not think so. Join me. Together we can make a difference on a global scale, change the direction of politics and the hate culture that is controlling too much of our world.
What’s it all about?
Earth +30 is really about three simple questions, Where are we now? Where do we want to go? And how are we going to get there? On the surface that is pretty simple, but scratch that surface and it gets way more complicated. Join me in my conversations with people who are thinking, strategizing, planning and acting to build a better future. Perhaps we can learn from them, and each other, to be more effective and impactful.
