Need: GLOBAL SEARCH FOR ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDS AND SUSTAINABLE ORGANIZATIONS:

I am collecting interviews for a book about people who are acting as environmental stewards for their community. This short interview will highlight what you or your organization does, how you got started, and what you must do to continue your work.
This interview will go in the second book of a series featuring socially conscious leaders from around the world.The book will be free to read online and will include links to your organization. This book is also marketed through Up To You, which is an initiative that encourages and rewards volunteerism.

The first book in the series featured 16 people from around the world who work in various fields such as human rights, education, environmental sustainability, youth mentoring, health and innovation. That book "How Will You Create Positive Change?" is available to read for free on Bookemon.com

If you are interested in being a part of this book and want to inspire more people to protect and respect the environment leave a comment or send me a message. This book will be published in English, so you will need the ability to write well in the English language.

Hi Leah, Nice idea! You

Hi Leah,

Nice idea! You should try and contact the European Youth Press, they have young people really interested in enviromental issues you'd find interesting to interview. Check their Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/youthpress?ref=ts&fref=ts

And I'll share your message in the enviromental section.
Are you only looking at people in the US? You should check out the programme "adopt a beach" of Los Angeles: http://www.healthebay.org/get-involved/volunteer/cleanups

I hope that helps!
Good luck

Thank you

Thank you for taking the time to reply and sharing those resources. I would prefer to have an international mix, but I have not had much success in that area. It seems I either find people who don't reply to my messages or that don't have any contact info.
