Sustainability Through IT: A Double-Edged Sword – Featuring Tim Paganos, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of microshare.io
Smart buildings are good right? Adjusting room temperature and lighting based on patterns of use is more efficient, uses less resources and is therefore more sustainable. Collecting more detailed data enables greater refinement of systems and environments. But when is enough, enough? Join us for this provocative conversation about data collection, sustainability and privacy.

Kate Raworth, the author of “Doughnut Economics: 7 ways to think like a 21st century economist,” discusses the framework’s role in shaping circular economy policies and business practices at city level. Join our viewing and discussion of the Episode 22 of the show (youtube link of Episode 22).

What if we could use open-source software development principals to reverse climate change?
That is exactly what The Open Air Collective has done through their Direct Air Carbon Capture (DACC) projects and their leadership in crafting the New York State Low Embodied Carbon Concrete Leadership Act (LECCLA)
LECCLA is new legislation that would require all of the state’s agencies to include climate impact in their selection criteria for concrete procurement. The more sustainable a concrete provider’s bid is, the more likely it will be to win the business.
This is a big deal. As the single largest purchaser of concrete in NY, the state’s collective buying power could kickstart a market transformation, creating significant demand for low carbon concrete while broadening its availability in the private sector.

Kiss the Ground is a full-length documentary narrated by Woody Harrelson that sheds light on an “new, old approach” to farming called “regenerative agriculture” that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies, and feed the world.
We’ll be joined by Ryland Engelhart, Co-Founder & Executive Director of the Kiss the Ground organization and Producer of this evening’s Film. Ryland has spent the past 15 years as an entrepreneur and love-activist, creating transformation through his own organizations and in the world at large. His speaking engagement topics include sacred commerce, gratitude, veganism, building community, regeneration, and the connection between soil health, human health, and planetary health.
