What Inspired LoaTree to create the Better World Series?

Since its inception in 2009, we have been profiling changemakers, inspiring action, and building community for the purpose of building a better world. Our favorite moments at LoaTree have been those in which we have celebrated social and environmental wins with our community. This progress has led to an upwelling of optimism for the years ahead, yet our current political climate is challenging these triumphs and introducing unpredictability for the future.

Now, more than ever, we must gather together, educate one another, and activate our minds and bodies in order to take matters into our own hands. Together, we have the power to build a better world and the Better World Series is an intentional opportunity to build it alongside our community.

The Better World Series is brought to you in partnership with
