Nature Hour: How Lancaster can change the way we think about climate change
About this event
Individual responsibility and national climate legislation have failed to make real progress on climate change – we need a different strategy. Right now there are viable climate solutions that could create jobs and build more resilient economies, and many are based in rural communities. The nation needs examples of places like Lancaster to show how a non-partisan climate approach could address environmental challenges while building stronger communities.
About the Presenter
Eric is a social innovator focused on climate change with a background in engineering, sustainability, and design. Despite the looming challenge of climate change, Eric is resolutely optimistic about the potential for people to implement solutions that build a more vibrant and equitable world. For the past five years, he has worked alongside farmers and natural resource professionals to create new programs and support for farmers to sequester carbon, generate ecosystem services, and create resilient agricultural economies. This vantage point allowed Eric to see the potential for greater regional climate collaboration. He founded RegenAll, a Lancaster-based nonprofit, to catalyze regeneration across rural and urban communities. RegenAll works with individuals, businesses, and communities to identify and implement place-based climate solutions that capitalize on a region’s unique strengths and resources. Eric and his wife Ruth live in Lancaster with their two children.
