Christine Ervin

"" Communicating Climate Change: Getting Beyond the Usual Suspects. Article by Christine Ervin. What was true ten years ago when this article was written remains just as true today: “Despite encouraging polls and myriad climate initiatives, there remains a yawning chasm between general awareness and sustained actions. Moreover, too many still perceive climate change as smacking of advocacy or political ideology, or at the least, distant from their own sphere of influence.” Article >>

"" The Living Building Challenge: How Limits Can Liberate. Article by Christine Ervin. In the case of climate change, a cap is simply fundamental to creating an emissions trading market, which, in turn, provides the best climate for innovative technologies.

Jobs Our Parents Never Heard Of. Article by Melissa Everett. "Here's one more reason," Everett writes, "to dread the infamous party question, 'What do you do for a living?' When you're talking about a fair number of the positions connected with protecting and restoring the environment, it is not easy to answer that question because so many new environmental jobs come in such unorthodox packages." Article >>

No Need To Go Solo To Innovate: Try Intrapreneurship. Article by Melissa Everett. Maybe it's the economy, and maybe a lot of us are feeling the pressure to perform while we're still at our peak, but lately I've been hearing a lot of people struggling with the dilemma: get a job or start a business? Both can seem soooo compelling. Both can seem sooooo risky. If you're an enterprising soul, but you're wishing for a supportive structure around you, consider a third path: creating something new within an established workplace. Article >>
