on the ground

This blog is about real-world problems, feasible solutions, and effective leadership. Let’s look at what’s working as well as what we might try. Here you will find real-world people only, with the research to back up their environmental concerns, and the impetus to do something about them.

What can we do differently? How can we overcome the mental, social, and physical challenges of environmental change? What are the solutions? What do we need to understand? Human activity is reconfiguring the world in which we live. The question is, how can we make conscientious, competent decisions about it?

The impacts of climate change are increasingly felt on the ground, and yet people have a remarkable ability to avoid what is happening right in front of them. Many are paralyzed by uncertainty. Some feel it is beyond their control. And some try not to care. We offer compelling information that you can safely be certain about.

The invitation to write is given to people who are energized. They are positioned to provide insights, and they are taking on the challenges right now. Their courageous visions can enable our potential and provide us with reasons for hope. On the ground is here to help their voices get heard.

These leaders can offer insights and solutions that work at various scales, from the personal to the local, to the national, to the global. They have technological, economic, sociocultural, and political insights to offer. Here you will find case studies from people who can see the problems, offer solutions, and inspire pro-environmental change. It can be done, and they are showing us how.

The purpose of this site is to deliver a news feed of real-world environmental stories. I want to get the word out and raise interest in environmental issues. Let’s develop a better understanding of what can be done on the ground to accomplish our pro-environmental goals. Let’s share solutions and learn from each other.

The word “wealth” comes from Old English and means “well-being” and “health” together. Let’s talk about what motivates us. Let’s find ways to overcome our common environmental challenges. Along the way, let’s enjoy the process of finding and discovering solutions. Let us gain peace of mind, wealth, and wisdom though attending to the well-being of future generations and the vibrant biodiversity of the Earth today.

The best time to act is now. Let’s get the word out together. Find out how.
