I am a designer and environmentalist, and in my research, I come across a wide range of positive eco stories. We have some serious challenges as a species, but to give people hope, I am keen to focus on the good ideas that are being developed.

I will be curating a positive eco news stories that I come across on a bi-weekly basis so I hope you can feel energised and be inspired to work towards positive outcomes for our planet.
