What are the best environmental blogs in the world? It’s…
What we’re about
The Environment Show features interviews with key environmental leaders and focuses on important environmental issues and innovative solutions to big environmental challenges.
We do our best to avoid preaching about the environment and getting bogged down in the minutiae. Our aim is to tackle the big issues and to showcase the best, most inspiring innovations – to make the environment interesting and accessible (as it should be.)
Where we came from
Phil Stubbs, the Show’s producer, started out doing environmental current affairs stories for Radio 2ser (Sydney Educational Radio). Phil repackaged his 5-minute current affairs stories as podcasts through the iTunes store. At one stage they reached number 4 in the ‘news and politics’ section in Australia.
Where we’re going
We’ll be incorporating more multi-media, including videos and photos, in future. And we’ll be adding more on how you can find work in the environment, travel to pristine natural places, reviews of environmental films and books, and a guide to environmental events.
Why we’re doing this
Every generation has had its challenge. For the people of the 20th Century, it was two World Wars. For us, in the 21st Century, it’s to live sustainably on this Earth.
The scale of the environmental problems caused by humans is unprecedented. All of the Earth’s systems are in trouble right now. It’s not just climate change.
At the same time solutions do exist. And those solutions will not only fix the problems, but they will also improve the quality of life for us and generations to come.
How do we get people to see the real challenges and the answers that are within reach? Of course, the media can play a key role, but it’s hard to find a media channel that does it clearly, simply, in a way that people can relate to but at the same time is thoughtful and intelligent (without the hype.)
That’s where the Environment Show comes in. We focus on the big picture and aim to inspire – with the most important environmental leaders, films, books, events, and ideas on the planet.
Our goal is to help take sustainability from the fringes to the mainstream.
