Connecting what matters to what works
People | Planet | Places
We're already writing Earth's Next Chapter.
Let's write the story we want to read.
Hosted by Dr. Anne Waple, founder of ENC, the podcast explores the intersection of People, Planet, and Places with fun and amazing guests, great stories, and things-that-Anne-is-curious about. We'll have some recurring features, and just generally have a blast getting to know more about what's outside the window and how we're writing our next chapter!
Threaded through Earth's Next Chapters' three themes of People, Planet, and Places is climate and climate change. With over 25 years of experience in climate services, ENC specializes in consulting with businesses and organizations at every level to help manage the impact OF climate and reduce their impact ON climate. Our ultimate goal is to help businesses do well financially while doing good for the community and the planet.
The three themes of Earth's Next Chapter
The reason why people are the first and central category of Earth's Next Chapter is because at over 7.5 billion people on the planet, we are already the dominant force of change. We're already writing Earth's Chapter. What we do matters. To ensure we write a next chapter that works for all of us, we need to understand what's really important to us as we take care of each other, foster social connection, and develop our social and economic systems (including technology) to support people, planet, and places.
Planet is all about our environment and resources: air, water, plants and animals, energy, oceans, climate, habitat, culturally important ecosystems, and equally important: beauty.
Our planet is an intricately connected system and as we dig deeper with what matters to us as we write Earth's Next Chapter, the layers of our environment we rely on and appreciate become ever clearer.
This is where we live, where we work, and where we visit. Whether you live a big city, as many of us do, or a small town or village, an informal settlement on the edge of a city, a houseboat on a river, or tucked away in a remote, rural area, this is where People and Planet actually coincide. This is where we often connect best and have the most impact. Place connects us to our environment and it's where our social and economic systems are most noticeable.
