The Jay and Scott origin story, as detailed in this episode and as presumably will be depicted in an upcoming motion picture starring Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling, started at a Net Impact networking event. Net Impact is an organization focused on helping students and professionals use their skills for social and environmental impact. Most all sustainability professionals know and respect this organization, and this episode will tell you all that you need to know about Net Impact and its upcoming annual conference in Philadelphia November 3-5. We'll also talk about what's hot in the sustainability field and where it is going in the future. Check out www.netimpact.org for more information on the organization and the conference. We hope to see ya there!
***Note to our beloved listeners. Future episodes will follow our normal format of breaking down a concept and interviewing an expert in that concept. This is a special episode that is part of our partnership with Net Impact. We are detailing Net Impact and its upcoming annual conference in this episode because we think our listeners can benefit a lot from getting involved in this organization. Also, as part of this partnership, Net Impact has put us in touch with some amazing sustainability professionals that are speaking at the conference and will be joining us on the show in upcoming episodes.
SustainabilityDefined is the podcast that seeks to define sustainability, one concept (and bad joke) at a time. Hosted by Jay Siegel and Scott Breen. Each episode focuses on a single topic that helps push sustainability forward. We explain each topic with the help of an experienced pro, place it within our organizational tree, and help our listeners define what exactly sustainability is, episode by episode. We have divided our organizational tree into the following seven sectors:
Each episode is categorized under one of our sectors and visually depicted within our organizational tree. The more episodes we complete, the more the tree will visually define what exactly sustainability means. www.sustainabilitydefined.com
