Mezzacello and the UN 17 SDGs

Mezzacello and the UN 17 SDGs

This is a reboot of a presentation I gave last year at The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium’s Teen Eco Summit. I really loved that experience. These kids are hungry for the opportunity to be a #ChangeAgent.

What kids need is the skills it takes to reframe the problem or in this case, problems. It’s not easy to change the world as a powerless visionary. We MUST empower the young to see their power, and then give them the courage to act on it.

Sustainability Portal


I wrote 17 blogposts about how I talk the talk and walk the walk right here and now at Mezzacello. As we head into #EarthDay I think it’s important to embody the reality of what it takes to live an authentic life of sustainability. I have linked them all out below.

I refer to the way we all start to make positive change as sustainable murmuration. Murmuration is a mathematical process where 7 individuals apply a geometric pattern to each other and the entire structure becomes a fractal of this behavior. We all of us need to watch, act, and follow for sustainability to be accessible.

I hope you enjoy these blogs. I want you to read them, share them, and do the work to be their steward. Change requires intention, action, and impact.
