What On EARTH Can We Do? is a storytelling and educational podcast produced by the Alberta Emerald Foundation and created by Hoopla Media in Edmonton, AB. Emerald Award recipients – our province’s environmental leaders – are featured in the annual series through casual conversation with hosts Gregory Caswell (Alberta Emerald Foundation) and Colleen Nuc (Hoopla Media). Each episode surrounds its own environmental topic, with our guests sharing their related achievements, experience, and tips. While tackling these big topics as individuals can seem daunting, we learn that together we can answer the question “What On EARTH Can We Do?”.
The opinions of our guests do not reflect those of the Alberta Emerald Foundation.
In this episode sponsored by the good folks at the Edmonton Goodwill Impact Centre, Colleen and Gregory learn about Canada's first solar-powered buses in St. Albert, and a not-for-profit that is funding renewable energy projects across Alberta, the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre.
Youth (Part Two!)
Last season, we chatted with a young person about their un-bee-lievable work – but the conversation about youth leading the environmental movement was far from over.
In this episode, we take you on a road trip of Southern Alberta, and introduce you to some incredible educators who are inspiring the next generation of environmental leaders.
Community & Collaboration
Can somewhere as stunning as https://emeraldfoundation.ca/aef_awards/dalehodgespark/ (Dale Hodges Park) be built by one person? Collaboration is essential in moving forward and guests Tristan Surtees, Charles Blanc, Carolyn Bowen, and Chris Manderson will tell you why.
Trash to Cash
Guests Kim Caron and Glen Smith (Eco-Growth Environmental) talk biofuel, entrepreneurship, and how sustainable businesses just might save the world.
In the season two premiere, guests Megan Andre & Rebekah Adams (Agroforestry & Woodlot Extension Society) and Katelynne Webb (City of Edmonton Root for Trees) teach us why we should be loving trees our whole life, not just in grade four.
"What On Earth Did We Do?"
In the season one finale, Colleen and Gregory revisit what they learned from the environmental experts and share their successes and takeaways.
