Climate Resilience Consulting
Climate resilience: increasing your adaptability to changes brought about by a warming world, whether those changes are expected or unexpected. We do this through a combination of systems thinking and promotion of various technologies that can ease the transition to greater resilience.
- Polyculture – this is growing a variety of plants together to take advantage of their compatibilities and reduce the need for extra water and pesticides.
- Smarter energy consumption through IoT (Internet of Things)
- Saving for solar and other renewables
- How to use cleaner transportation, computing resources, and more
- Harnessing the power of geography: using location to discover patterns and trends
- Understanding the distribution of carbon storage and wildfire risk in an area
- Monitoring greenhouse gas sources and sinks
- Budgeting: Balancing spending on renewables with savings in other areas
- Cybersecurity and Infrastructure: ensuring our lights stay on and our water is still available for us to drink
We will have two introductory meetings. During the first meeting we will fill out a questionnaire together. It will ask a bit about your background as well as identify your goals and expectations. The following week we will invite you to return for a second meeting where we will deliver a plan for meeting those goals.
We develop a personalized approach for everyone who seeks our help but we also realize that it takes a village to create change.
In addition to traditional one-on-one consulting, we will also be opening up our office to study groups where you can ask questions of us or each other. You will be able to meet like-minded people who are at various stages of the journey toward greater sustainability.
Every bit counts; it’s not expected that overnight you reach net zero and later you end up producing more than you consume. Although if that is your goal, we can help get you there.
Sustainable Economic Development
There are many places within and beyond large cities that do not have the best access to healthy food, pristine water, excellent and affordable healthcare, good schools, the fastest internet speeds, and the list goes on. How might you as a citizen help your community grow in a smart and sustainable way that can meet the challenges of the near future? We can help.
Remote Work and Coworking
We help employers identify opportunities for their employees to work remotely. Not every job requires the physical presence of an on-site employee. Savings may be realized on utilities simply by having employees work off-site. Or, if you have extra space, earnings can be realized by offering those spaces as coworking spaces.
High-Tech Job Creation
Build it and they will come. Build a high-tech workforce and companies will come calling to hire those workers. Companies may even set up shop in your local area and add to your tax dollars that go to support your community. How do we make this happen? We can match your skills and abilities with a customized training plan to help you enter the high-tech workforce as quickly as feasible.
If home internet speeds are a problem for gaining access to the training materials you need, we now offer free gigabit internet to our clients. Now there really is no obstacle to achieving your dreams while helping your community grow in a smart and sustainable way.
Individuals and Businesses We Serve
Our ideal client is someone like yourself who wants to do the right thing. We all do, we just don’t want to lose money doing it. We both know that economic and ecologic sustainability is the wave of the future. We both know that we can achieve smart growth in our communities through the use of technology. We both want to do things that have meaning, and nothing has more meaning or purpose than helping the planet and each other when it is needed more now than ever before.
