The more I learn about all of the challenges we face as a global community, the more interested I become in sustainability. The earth is an amazing gift that we have the opportunity to enjoy. However, humanity is currently wreaking havoc on the environment. Although natural systems are collapsing, we have the opportunity to change how we interact with nature. By changing the way we use natural resources, we can improve the chances of future generations enjoying the beauty of nature.
In this interview with David Grillot of Karma Tribe, I share a cappella verses relating to the topic of sustainability. I also take the opportunity to speak with David about the importance of personal empowerment and much more!
On A Mission
I’m on a mission to find and/or create a network of individuals who can help the world realize sustainability. From a scientific standpoint, we have all of the resources necessary to do this. However, from a cultural standpoint, we have a long way to go.
My hope is that I can play a part amplifying the voices of experts in the field of sustainability. I want to find the best information on how we can all work together to create a more sustainable world. Then, I want to help share that vision with the world. Naturally, we’ll be able to gather more and more people who want to see this vision become a reality. By working together, we can overcome obstacles and create a better world for all of us.
Permaculture In Austin
One way I’ve found I can make a positive impact in the realm of sustainability is through working with local permaculture organizations. Festival Beach Food Forest, for example, built and maintains a public park in central Austin with fruit and nut trees, grape vines, herbs and spices, and other beautiful plants. This park is open to the public and serves as a beautiful community space.
The Festival Beach Food Forest is based on permaculture principles. Permaculture comes from the words “permanent” and “agriculture.” It’s a system of design based on observing natural thriving systems and applying the underlying principles to what we create. Permaculture principles can be used in almost any area of life. If, for instance, we applied permaculture principles to the planning of our cities, we could have a much more harmonious interation with nature.
I’m starting with small steps. But, gradually, I know I can connect with more and more sustainability experts and find a way that we can work together to design a more harmonious and thriving world.
