SDG13: Climate Action

The science is clear – our world is warming and humans are part of the cause.

There are so many actions we can take as individuals and it does help – every conversation helps people see there are alternatives and that we can all do something. It could be tied to discussions about what we buy, what we eat, how much plastic we use, how we get from a to b or what bank we choose to let use our money, or where our pension funds sit. Being open and curious enough to look at your climate footprint is a great way to start.

Some of our most popular talks have been tied to helping save your pocket and the planet.
