"These times are urgent; let us slow down"
Dr. Bayo Akomolafe
We are at a critical moment in human history. Intersectional crises abound. There are solutions everywhere you look. By harnessing the power of connection, we can unlock the inherent capacity for change we all hold. By aligning and learning from the ways of nature, we can move adaptively to get to know one another and illuminate the pathways for change.

I’m a strategic program designer and facilitator working at the intersection of sustainability, climate change, and racial equity.
I’ve been convening people around climate change and sustainability for nearly 15 years. In this time, I’ve developed a unique perspective that the sustainability field is highly nuanced and complex and that simply picking a solution and moving it forward is not sufficient. The how is often more important than the what. The work is in the relationships and in making the necessary conversations possible.
I managed programs for a decade at Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN), a robust network of local government sustainability, climate, and equity professionals and most recently served as Foundational Practices Director. I have served on the teaching team for the Harvard Executive Education in Sustainability Leadership Program since 2021. I also coordinated a local 350 mass chapter, co-founded my small rural town’s first sustainability committee, and supported implementation of several state climate grants.
I am grateful to live and work on Mohican Land in present-day Berkshire County Massachusetts with my partner. When not supporting mission-driven organizations and humans, I can most likely be found with my hands and feet in soil, tending garden beds and small plants, and observing the natural world around me, my greatest teacher.
My methods are highly adaptive and I'd love to discuss ways we may partner. Please contact me to set up a time.
