Don’t underestimate the impact a stove can have on a woman’s life. In rural communities in Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and Mexico, women do all the cooking for their families. By building fuel-efficient, clean-burning stoves in our project communities, EcoLogic helps improve the health of both families and forests. Stoves, however, are not one size fits all. So how do we find out which model works best for a given community? We ask the women who use them!
On October 1, EcoLogic will be bringing 10 experts on topics from indigenous rights to climate change together for Turning the Tables: Nurturing Resilience, a dinner party with a twist. Here, Nish Acharya, CEO of Citizence and one of the experts we have invited to dinner, reflects on his career journey, sustainability, and a preview of what guests at his dinner table can plan to discuss. His topic at Turning the Tables is “Global Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystems.”
Laudato Si, the Pope’s landmark encyclical, has ignited an international conversation about climate change. But no conversation about climate action can ignore the fact that the world’s poor—including the rural and indigenous communities that EcoLogic works with every day—are already being hit the hardest by the impacts of climate disruption.
