We were grateful to be joined by Dr. Jonathan Foley, director of Project Drawdown, for Earth Day in April.  Jonathan is a world-renowned environmental scientist, sustainability expert, author, and public speaker. His work is focused on understanding our changing planet, and finding new solutions to sustain the climate, ecosystems, and natural resources on which we all depend.  

Dr. Foley provided an in-depth appraisal of where we stand with respect to climate change and global warming.  And he made the point that there is yet room – indeed, a necessity – for optimism.

I had the good fortune to sit down – virtually, of course – with Alyssa Norwood, until very recently our Project Manager for Certification & Innovation.  She, along with the incomparable Jess LeClaire, was responsible for bringing so many towns in the state across the finish line of certification.  Alyssa was a founding member of the Sustainable CT team, so I wanted to hear her take on our group’s founding and her part in it, and what she thought was important and inspiring about Sustainable CT.  We ended up talking about many things – from housing policy to what it means to be an end-of-life doula.  Here's our conversation recorded on March 22.
