on July 30, 2020 in Art, Creativity, Events, Evolutionary Psychology

My second TEDx talk, “What everyone gets wrong about the environment” and how to get it right

on November 7, 2019 in Events, Leadership, Nature, Stories

I am deeply grateful to the TEDxWaltham team for inviting me and hosting the event, October 5, 2019. Here’s the blurb: Josh shares his remarkable, radical, personal journey to more sustainable living — away from a standard American diet (and life) to his vegan, nearly package-free diet and away from a jet-setting lifestyle to not flying for 4.5 years and counting — and his profound discovery of a common misconception[…] Keep reading →
