SUSTAINABLE FOR LIFE:
THE CLIMATE HAS CHANGED. LET'S TALK.
Let’s acknowledge we are in a time of existential confusion and change. This is such an emotional moment, and it’s not easy to be positive now. At the same time, it is clear to us that the world is changing rapidly and that business in our community will never be the same. Change is usually so difficult, and here it’s become the norm. Everything is changing.
Mother Nature has a fascinating way of communicating with us even in the darkest of times. In LA, the air we breathe is cleaner than it’s been in over 100 years. Beyond that fact, we feel it profoundly – the sky is blue, as if someone wiped a layer of grime off the window. It’s truly a bright spot in this uncertain time. The Earth is breathing again.
At Rewilder, we see this is a time for CHANGE. The choices we make now in this moment of unprecedented disruption will shape our future.
Over the next two weeks we will be hosting virtual climate conversations with people in Los Angeles who are wholly passionate about sustainable living. We see this as an opportunity to connect in community -- share knowledge, unique perspective, and hope that future changes are positive ones.
This is an experiment. We hope these conversations will lead to awareness and action. It is clear to anyone, we cannot return to ‘business as usual’. Our hope is that this is the window we need to shift out of a capitalist model of extraction and consumption to something more holistic and cooperative.
Our first virtual conversation will be this Friday with:
Laura Doss-Hertz, founder of Skysource, a social impact enterprise focused on creating deployable atmospheric water solutions that address all aspects of global water issues.
David Hertz, co-founder of Skysource, and founder of S.E.A. Architecture, an award winning sustainable architecture firm
Ron Finley, infamously known as the ‘Gangsta Gardner’, Finley serves the community by teaching people the power of growing your own food.
Shannon Scott, co-founder and CEO of COMUNITYmade, INC, handcrafted premium shoes; their ethos is supporting the local economy and bringing back the lost art of quality manufacturing.
Sean Scott, co-founder and President of COMUNITYmade, INC, handcrafted premium shoes; their ethos is supporting the local economy and bringing back the lost art of quality manufacturing.
There will be regular updates on our Instagram and we will be sending new stories and ideas via our website.
Stay tuned and be ready for CHANGE.
