As the devastating effects of climate change take hold around the world, young people are demanding action from global leaders and, increasingly, taking action themselves. Ask a teenager or young adult which issues they think are most pressing in the world today, and climate will often top the list. One of the goals of our Creating Citizens initiative is to provide a forum for youth to meet and learn from peers and civic leaders about the complex and often controversial issues that are important to them. So it is with special pride that we present a panel of young climate activists discussing their own work and the power of youth to address the climate crisis and issues of racial and social injustice around the world. SPEAKERS Samir Chowdhury Founder and Executive Director, Youth Climate Action Team, Inc. Vanessa Nakate Author, A Bigger Picture: My Fight to Bring a New African Voice to the Climate Crisis Zaria Romero Climate Generation Delegate, COP26; Junior, University of Wisconsin-Madison Darren Zook Professor, Global Studies and Political Science, University of California, Berkeley In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently hosting all of our live programming via YouTube live stream.

I remember when I was first seeking a way for BioLight to somehow become involved in a scientific study and have our products validated by research. It didn't take long for my path to entangle with today's guest, Elias Arjan.  At the time, Elias was overlooking an arm of Biostrap called Biostrap Labs, which he himself developed to help biohacking and wellness brands run their products through a valid research protocol -- utilizing the biometric data from Biostrap wearables -- to provide scientific evidence to support their own products. As you will learn from Elias, the biohacking landscape is tantamount to the wild wild west where there just isn't much regulation. Sound similar to the supplement industry?   On today's episode of  The Red Light Report, Elias talks in depth about his passion for evidence-based biohacking and how that would help combat misinformation and over-hyped marketing, ultimately empowering the consumer. He is also a bonafide expert in all things wearables and biometrics, so he shares his knowledge in these areas as well.   Elias Arjan is is a business professional, health and wellness educator, and biohacker. As a serial entrepreneur, Elias has started his own businesses and worked in and consulted for Fortune 500 companies, startups, and nonprofits.Elias is ​​the CEO of Business Brain, a strategic consulting firm that serves brands in the health, fitness, and biotech industries. As the Executive Producer of Bioscience LA TV, he is working to connect the ecosystem of bioscience companies in LA county and beyond. Elias is also a sought-after educator/speaker on wearable technology, biometric science and wellness optimization; as well as the former Senior Vice President of Biostrap. He has been featured in LA Magazine, NBC's California Live, LA Business Journal, and multiple podcasts.    Elias works to optimize individuals and companies as a consultant and trainer and has been a leading proponent of evidence-based biohacking in Los Angeles and beyond. As the Executive Director of the Biohackers Collective, Elias is working in conjunction with organizers in 33+ cities worldwide to make Biohacking more accessible.   Elias has been featured in international publications for his work in the health, technology, and biohacking sectors. Elias is a regular contributor to the International Sport Science Association (ISSA), guiding fitness professionals on how to best use wearable technology to improve outcomes for themselves and their clients.Get ready ​for Elias to enlighten you about the world of biohacking and help you become a more critical consumer. Enjoy! - Dr. Mike Belkowski & Elias Arjan discuss the following:  His background and how he became an educator in the biohacking world Evidence-based biohacking and his vision for approaching validation "Doing the science" and how you can validate claims made about your product Combating misinformation Placebo vs reality and anecdotal evidence for products Wearable biometric devices and the differentiation between them Sensors and how different types can dictate their accuracy in wearables How red light penetrates 10x deeper then green light Molecular sensing as the next phase of measuring biometrics Taking initiative in controlling your own health How to cut through the marketing and know what device to choose How supplement labels might not always contain what they say EMF and how the electromagnetic spectrum works Biostrap labs and its origins in his own experimentation Biohacks he currently employs - Learn More About & From Elias Arjan: LinkedIn -  Elias Arjan  Instagram - @eliasarjan  Websites: eliasarjan.com & Business Brain - Watch this episode on YouTube: https://youtu.be/axwr1KlsXug - To learn more about red light therapy and shop for the highest-quality red light therapy products, visit www.biolight.shop - Stay up-to-date on social media: Instagram YouTube Facebook

As Manager and Executive Director of the Santa Barbara Foresters, Bill has led the college summer-ball team to NINE national championships, most recently this year! The Santa Barbara Foresters won their ninth NBC World Series championship with a 14-2 win over Lonestar Baseball. Bill Pintard's teams have reached the NBC World Series an all- time record 20 consecutive seasons. Since taking over the team in 1995, Bill has won more than 800 games and 18 California Collegiate League titles and is believed to be the winningest coach in Collegiate summer-ball history. In 2009, he was given a prestigious scouting honor, the Sparky Anderson Award by the Association of Professional Ballplayers for his ongoing contributions to baseball player development. Finally, along with a busy family and baseball life, Bill is the director of the Foresters' Hugs for Cubs, a year-round support program for children and families battling cancer and other serious illness. In 2014, he was named to the NBC World Series Hall of Fame. More than 40 former Foresters have reached the Major Leagues, along with another 300-plus who have signed minor-league contracts. Bill doesn't confine his baseball to the Foresters. He has been a Major League Scout for 18 years, starting with the Yankees in 1997 before moving to the Angels in 2002 for 10 seasons. He returned to the Yankees in 2013, as scout focusing on amateur high school and college players.

Our guest today, Amy Ziff, is the founder and Executive Director of Nontoxic Certified & the MADE SAFE® certification; America's first comprehensive certification program that screens out known toxic ingredients in everything from baby and bedding to personal care products, cosmetics, and cleaners. MADE SAFE was the first and only seal that applies to all non-food consumer product categories.

And that vision led him to create Hydrow, an immersive in-home rowing experience unlike anything that the world had seen before.In his talk with Jesse, Bruce describes his entrepreneurial journey, starting with setting up shop in Boston and how the city proved to be both a fitting backdrop and a powerful catalyst for early growth. He gives an insider's look at rowing culture and how it led him to pursue a more inclusive path. He breaks down his company's process for designing machinery, software, and content synchronously. He advocates for rowing's holistic health benefits. And he offers a peek into how Hydrow was able to develop its now-patented approach for broadcasting content live from the water.

A strong public health infrastructure is required at the national, state, territorial, and local levels to carry out critical programs and respond to emergencies. How can states move from a reactive approach of ad hoc crisis funding to a proactive investment in nimble, cross-cutting systems? How are states that are undergoing public health transformations positioned to leverage new funding for core priorities like data modernization?

Pardon me while I drop my first ever LIVE episode into this space! And, wouldn't you know it, my guest and I cover all the Conversations With a Wounded Healer favorites: community, connection, spiritual anchors, resiliency, the white-washing of mental wellness spaces, and the importance of therapists engaging in their own work (natch).  What a joy to sit beside Camesha Jones, LCSW, at Sista Afya Community Mental Wellness, her gorgeous social enterprise located in Chicago's South Shore neighborhood. Founded in 2017, Sista Afya is dedicated to providing low- to no-cost mental wellness services that center the experiences of Black women. Let's chat about why centers like it are important––and, believe me, there aren't many places like Sista Afya, sadly. “Sometimes people keep saying this BS that Black people don't want to engage in therapy,” says Camesha. Ah, yes, the narrative about which communities are and aren't receptive to supportive healing, created by those outside the community to stigmatize and keep critical infrastructure like therapy from reaching those who need it. Camesha flatly refutes the trope.  Camesha has built a center that's community focused down to its core. The name, for instance, combines sista, a term of endearment used between Black women, and afya, a Swahili word that means to be healthy, free from psychological and physical illness.  In her own life, Camesha takes continual care to address challenges inherent to living with bi-polar disorder. She offers hope to folks, including fellow therapists, with similar experiences, modelling self-awareness and practicing sustainable self-care while running a successful business. “I go to therapy. I go to my psychiatrist. I take my meds. I do all the things [ ] and that's part of why I call myself a mental illness survivor,” she says, adding, “we're dealing with some of the same things, we're all dealing with some of the same things. It doesn't mean that we can't be effective in this work.” GUEST BIO Camesha Jones, LCSW, is a Social Worker, Entrepreneur, and Community Mental Wellness Advocate who serves at the intersection of culture, community, and social justice. Camesha strongly believes in eliminating barriers in the mental health field that people of diverse cultural backgrounds experience by creating affordable and accessible care that centers on the well-being of the whole person. Camesha is the Founder and Executive Director of Sista Afya Community Mental Wellness.  “WHOLE WOMAN, WHOLE COMMUNITIES” FUNDRAISER INFO To donate to Sista Afya's campaign, please visit: https://donorbox.org/saccwholewomen/fundraiser/sarah-buino I'm excited to support Sista Afya's Fall campaign, “Whole Women. Whole Communities.” This year, Sista Afya Community Care has offered 650 free therapy sessions and over 35 community workshops and classes that have collectively served over 200 women. The goal is to raise $35,000 to continue offering free mental wellness care to Black women in Chicago. They need your support to sustain the progress they've made so far. Sista Afya continues to remove barriers to accessing mental wellness care in their communities. Will you contribute to the annual year-end campaign by giving $50, $100, $250, or whatever amount you can towards our goal of $35,000 to help deepen the impact in providing free mental wellness care for Black women? The campaign will run the entire month of December, but make sure to donate now.  For full show notes, resources, and links to connect with our guest, visit: http://www.headhearttherapy.com/podcast *** Conversations with a Wounded Healer is a proud member of @mhnrnetwork.

Today's episode of From What If to What Next is about care. Care has been very much on our minds of recent. COVID has highlighted how vitally important care is and yet how undervalued it is. It is so often seen as being the domain of women, and around the world it is often either underpaid, or unpaid work. As the populations of the Global North live longer and longer, and as young people are unable to afford, often, to leave home, it tends to often fall to women to care for both the younger and the older generations simultaneously, what is sometimes called the ‘Sandwich Generation'. Many people are happy to stand on their doorsteps and clap for those who provide the care in our society, but not to really value care, not to campaign for it to be truly valued. These days of COVID have the potential to be a real watershed moment. So in today's episode, with two extraordinary women, we're asking "what if care work was valued?” This is an episode that might very well lead to inner paradigm shifts...

In today's episode, I have the absolute delight of talking with Jennifer Ching, Executive Director of the Northstar Fund here in NYC. Northstar is a social justice fund that supports grassroots organizing led by communities of color building power in New York City and the Hudson Valley.I was excited to talk with Jenn about the report that they released, in partnership with the New York Foundation, called Streets To Statehouse.  The first part of the report shares the lessons learned from two 2019 statewide campaigns that were led by grassroots organizations working in coalition with broader policy and advocacy networks. The second part of the report examines how grassroots organizing is not only essential for building campaigns from outside City Hall or Albany, but is also critical in building a more robust multiracial democracy.  Jenn talks about the purpose and focuses of the report in our conversation, and she does a fantastic job of articulating the “why” and “how” behind the research. But I wanted to share my own reasons for why it felt so important to me to have a conversation about the report.First, I am always on the lookout for tools that the growth stage-organizations that I work with and care so much about can use to build their capacity for true and lasting impact. So when I come across a report that functions like a how-to guide for creating systems change, I get really excited. Jenn and I talk not only about the actual how-to lessons that the report shares, but also how organizations - whether they use organizing as a primary vehicle for creating change or not - can use the findings as a tool. Which relates to the second theme that Jenn and I touch on, which is near and dear to my heart. True, lasting social change requires looking beyond the walls of our own organizations and mission and working in partnership and collaboration with other groups - especially those that use different methodologies. And it requires centering the lived expertise of people most impacted by the problems we're working to solve. Whether you're a direct service provider or an advocacy group, collaborations and networks must be part of your vision for impact. This report introduces some concrete ways to plug in to systems work.Finally, Jenn and I talk about how long true impact takes, and how it's incumbent on funders to invest in models that may take longer, but that create more tectonic shifts in our society. I always truly love talking with Jenn, and this conversation is no different. It's a great blend of the why and the concrete - enjoy!

After navigating significant resistance for over a year and a half, she was able to launch a research project to negate arguments about disease spread by cats, the impact of cat predation on native wildlife, and the benefits of sterilization. In the midst of COVID, data collection turned to neighborhood surveys which revealed paradigm-shifting data that challenged notions about the human element in the community cat equation. Stacy and Dr. Rand discuss barriers that are faced by cats' owners⸺especially those with limited financial resources⸺to access spay and neuter procedures.
