Psychological Insights for Planetary Protection

LoaTree announces the kick-off its Better World Series, 6-9 p.m. Thursday, March 16, at LoaTree headquarters, 508 E. Haley St., Santa Barbara.

LoaTree said the project, which focuses on psychological insights for planetary protection will gather, activate and inspire changemakers for the purpose of building a better world.

A community-centric project, the series aims to cultivate an appreciation for, and motivation to advance action around five waves, or themes, over the course of the year. These include: ecopsychology; women and climate justice; peace out, plastics; regenerative agriculture; and art as activism.

At the kick-off event, thought-leader and adviser, Renee Lertzman, will discuss Ecopsychology: The Art of Communicating for Planetary Protection.

Lertzman will focus on how to make connections between diverse and even polarized communities while building bridges toward healthier and more sustainable communities. Do our current approaches undermine our efforts? Are we missing opportunities?

The Better World Series calls on policymakers, decision-makers, change-makers, and business leaders to participate in a variety of lectures, workshops and digital campaigns, which will organize the community around these issue areas.

Lertzman's work has been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, Washington Post and TIME. For more about her, visit reneelertzman.com.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
