This presentation will cover how society got into this mess of toxic unsustainable homes and buildings. How humans told themselves they could change their relationship with nature and reality and how this created many of the problems we face today.
We will focus on Sustainable buildings and eco projects that restore nature and communities over exploitation—shifting to what made humans the dominant species on the planet which is our ability to build community, collaboration, and creation.
We will talk about Carbon and materials and how Eco projects and building impacts circularity, health, and the economy.
About Eric Douglas:
I am from Michigan and have a background in community organizing around environmental and climate change issues.
I use sustainability to solve issues that aren’t always obviously connected.
I do this by bringing stakeholders and ideas together.
This translates into reaching a wider swath of stakeholders and markets in a more substantive way.
It results in better solutions, agreements, and ownership of solutions.
Next, I want to connect people, opportunities, and teams working on sustainability and climate change solutions. Who are creative, cooperative, productive, and adventurous in this space.
Project leader, building dedicated, often volunteer teams, creating, coordinating, developing programs from scratch, and establishing multicultural groups consisting of high-level officials to rank-and-file members.
Knowledgeable of sustainability beyond reports and frameworks. Boots on the ground experienced working with many urban populations, nonprofits, businesses, and community organizations.
Work has been featured on Grist Public radio and at COP 21
