Starting Conversations

We Equipt Communities with the Tools to Combat Environmental Issues and Start Productive Dialogues on the Environment.

We bring neighbourhoods, city officials, and activists together to discuss meaningful and practical strategies in combatting climate change and pollinator decline.

Our Definition of a Meaningful Conversation.

Environmental issues are terrifying if left alone. In almost every form of environmental education, we are taught about the alarming declines of animal populations, devastating effects of deforestation, and the seemingly bleak future of our planet. When it comes to the remedies for these issues, however, we have little practical advice to share – painting these issues as inevitable juggernauts that’ll arrive sooner or later. This discourages environmental activism among youth and future generations, whose attention and effort is key to combating the environmental plagues of the world. By starting conversations among city officials, community members, and other activists, we hope to shed light on pragmatic solutions to these environmental issues. 

“None of us, including me, ever do great things. But we can all do small things, with great love, and together we can do something wonderful.”

– Mother Teresa

 

Through equipping cities and communities with the necessary tools to make a difference, we hope to paint fighting for environmental stability not as a menacing and esoteric monster unvanquishable by the masses, but a simple yet meaningful practice encountered in our everyday lives. Change Starts with YOU!
