Did you know? Michael C. Mitchell, creator of Better Worlds, was one of the original Earth Day organizers and he continues to support the Earth through climate justice today, advocating for technology that will be used to solve the nature crisis.
Mitchell became one of the organizers of the First Earth Day in 1970, coordinating universities throughout America's northwest states. After his work on the First Earth Day, he was one of 10 university students selected from across the nation by to form a national Youth Advisory Board on environmental matters, S.C.O.P.E (Student Council on Pollution and the Environment). was assigned to the U.S. Department of Interior where Mitchell was a reviewer on the creation of the first Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).
Today leaders are organizing at #ClimateWeekNYC to urge corporate and government leaders to take action on recommendations to invest in nature solutions. Everyone is beginnning to understand what Michael knew then: there is only one Chair of the Board - Nature.
Better Worlds is working for nature at Climate Week NYC with the #NaturePositive Hub (#nature4climate) and MRV Collective this week. We are conducting interviews to use on Better Worlds and our partner sites to spread the word on actions already underway, and focused on underpinning the urgency of climate solutions.
