Let’s TALK about the future

Are you ready to get involved?


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.
