Organization that brings like minded people together globally. Ambitious solutions to issues in communities. It is many things.They direct their attention at a lot of different things.
Do you have examples?
There’s a lot of individuals that do things with health care and citizen science. These are the two that I’ve seen the most.
How do they define the community?
Its up to each individual who is running and organisation or directive. They are meeting the needs of the local.
What did you start?
Working with the kids, education programming, all volunteer.Landscaping and water, recent work in Nepal. Regional to global. Incorporating youth groups. Sensitizing them to nature.We try to in-cooperate fly fishing into school: linking science art literature. Getting students outside into nature.
What is the link and how did that happen?
Water! Was the link. Access to clean water.There is a need for clean water in all of those places.The people in power control the water. The undeserved suffer the most. Cultural political corruption.

What does art bring?
For me Art is the access point for people. You seduce people by using art to make science accessible to people. I try to simplify or make opportunities for people to access the science for understanding. Example- Nepal ,visual art piece 2 languages. Story telling.Visualizing the abstractions of the structures we live in.Artists and scientist work together. Back then everybody was a scientist. Science was a lot more accessible. I see my job as making connections between people and the environment .
