Interviewing Eco-Hero Maya Penn: The "We Can Be Heroes" Newsletter

As part of my book One Green Thing: Discover Your Hidden Power to Help Save the Planet, I interview 21 Eco-Heroes that each reflect the seven different Service Superpower (TM) profiles.

I realized that more people needed to "see" themselves in climate action. You don't have to have a PhD to be part of the climate movement. We need as many people as possible leveraging their personal strengths and talents in climate action in ways that work for them.

I've recently launched the We Can Be Heroes Newsletter on Linked In. Subscribe for compelling stories, career and life advice from leaders in sustainability, climate action, service leadership, and wellness.

I'm honored that Eco-Hero, Gen Z activist, artist, and entrepreneur Maya Penn joined me to share her inspiring journey.
