Pondering Skies - Episode 1 - Moving the Needle

Download Transcript

In this first full episode, we hear from Sean MacInnes, Sustainability Specialist at UNC Greensboro in Greensboro, North Carolina. Sean talks to us about how he found his way from the arts to a career in sustainability, and shares his experience on what it's like working as a sustainability advocate in higher education.

Sean has a background in theater and creative writing, and has found a way to weave that experience into a life and career that is focused on sustainability. We'll hear a bit about who has inspired him, how being sustainability-minded influences his own personal life, and how we can all do a little bit to help move the needle toward positive change.

About This Podcast

This show asks the broad question: What does ‘sustainability’ really mean? Finding out is partly what this podcast is about. Doing the deep dive with each guest, I try to come at the concept from various perspectives.

In this podcast series, I'll take a broad view of the term, as we hear from educators, activists, community organizers, artists, scientists, designers, journalists, and more on what it means to them, and how they - and we - play a part in it.
