Join the Hum sum
Matter of Trust launched The Hum Sum as a platform dedicated to everyone who wants to offer solutions for environmental challenges. Every day can we see how humanity is buzzing with activity and good ideas for a healthy and harmonious planet!
Here, everyone can showcase inspiring examples for building healthy environments. From climate summits to green building open house walking tours, celebrate eco-actions, great and small. Promote your restaurant’s climate-friendly menu, nonprofit’s volunteer day, school’s edible garden, airport’s new recycling center, local shop’s sale on sustainable products, dog park’s model poo composting station, electric car parade, clean water art expo, bike-friendly neighborhood roundtable… Let’s gather momentum, build on each others ideas. The world is watching!
Discuss real-life eco-challenges. Add green incentives for work and home. Connect with innovators from different regions and across sectors. Discover the value of perspectives from every rung of the ladder. Help consolidate environmental news in this framework with links back to your sites for program details, research, fundraising, products, etc. Upvote experts with solutions to barriers. Volunteer to moderate this rant-free, troll-free, politics-free zone, so that vital collaboration can happen. Humanity has boots on the ground, seats in the boardroom and eyes on the future, so coordination is key!
