The Bigger Picture — Sustainable Caring & Action (VIDEO)

bigger picture sustainability

I’ve been involved in environmental activism in one form or another since I was a teenager. It’s what I studied for my bachelor’s degree and I always seem to come back to it in every field of work I engage in.

One of the biggest struggles for an activist such as me (and perhaps you) is keeping a balance. Not getting overworked, overwhelmed, or putting too much on my (your?) own shoulders.

So, I come back to the issue of a sustainable lifestyle from time to time.

Now, I’m also very interested in creating more videos on important topics related to my work. I decided to start out with a video on this topic. Hopefully, the videos will get better and better (be more humorous or catchy) as I make more, but I thought this one was good enough to publish and share (hope so):
