You & I are here because we care about climate change, and we believe this needs us all to act to solve the various problems related to this as the mainstream, not a small fringe. We believe this will need thousands of concerned and interested folks thinking about the problems and a huge array of different solutions in deep ways, many thousands trying things on the ground, spreading the messages about these, collaborating. We also believe almost everyone on the planet needs to understand the importance and urgency of these efforts.
We will not always think the same way, or about the same problems. We will have different paths in our journeys and even disagree on specific solutions and methods. But we’re all here because we have a common intent, vision and desire - to see how we can rewild this planet we call home, how we can live better with it, how our economy and the work we do align better with its health and survival and thus, in turn, our own.
I’m Sameer Shisodia, work at Rainmatter Foundation and welcome you here. I’d written this a while ago, and in a sense this encapsulates an array of focus areas for me : https://zenx.medium.com/the-six-dots-problem-re-imagining-india-b7d81b223827. As Rainmatter, we’re focused on climate change with rewilding as a primary area, and also the creation of green jobs and a green economy, distributed across the country beyond the big metros. We are also assisting the community with FOSS efforts, as well as helping entrepreneurs whose efforts we believe align with these directions. We believe this is a long journey and these steps will add to the efforts of many of you to create a significant, permanent change in favour of our ecology and ecosystems.
We’re hosting this as Rainmatter Foundation, but we truly hope this space belongs to the many who land here through various journeys. We’d love to see a cross pollination of ideas, connections, collaborations take off and these efforts become how we live on this planet. And we hope to learn from you, and be of assistance where we can.
Do introduce yourself (and your organization, if any) and also share your area(s) of interest, desire and opportunities for collaboration and what help you could do with.
