Happy Earth Day 2019


We all know the clock is ticking.

The world's leading climate panel has called for radical transformation in the way we live on this precious planet--change at a speed and scale with "no documented historic precedent.”

Last year I co-convened ReGen18, a gathering of 500 leaders in green enterprise, eco-activism, food systems, urban planning, and media. Co-sponsored by GWC,  it explored new roadmaps to a Regenerative Society that supports the thriving of both people and planet--and reverses climate change. (See my interview in Forbes.)

I’m happy and proud to bring fresh vegetables to my family like kale, amaranth, and moringa from our Green World gardens!

With your help, we can double the 3.5 million trees we've planted in Kenya, growing programs that  improve childhood nutrition, rural income, carbon "drawdown"  and provide eco-education to hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren and farmers. And we can expand our award-winning, regenerative practices around the world!

Green World Campaign began planting trees worldwide 14 years ago, and it has improved lives and sustained communities ever since.
