Who We Are

Hi, I’m Mel

I’m an optimist and prefer to see climate change not as an inevitability, but as an opportunity – to change, rebuild and innovate.

A PhD-trained economist and life-coach-in-training, I’m here to help you steer your path through change.

While climate change is already here, there is much we can still do to help slow it down and ultimately reverse it.

We have changed the environment once, by accident. Now let’s change it on purpose, and create a healthy planet, one fit for life and a healthy economy.

This is a journey that awakens creativity, compassion and genius. We’ll need inspiration to change and reimagine everything we make and do.

But perhaps the hardest part will be the filling in the details and having the courage to change our lives and implement our plans, so that we begin to live in a different world.

Climate change will be THE defining issue in our lifetimes.

How will you respond? Will your better angel prevail?

Who are you deep down, at your most authentic and very best? 

Bring with you your unique gifts. They will help to see every nook and cranny of the world you seek. 

And let's be excited again about our future.
