Earth Calling

Introduction

Will We Answer the Call?

We don’t need to tell you that the media loves to talk about all the bad stuff happening in the world, and the good hardly gets a moment to shine. Sometimes this makes it hard to keep motivated, right? But doing the work we do, we’re constantly overwhelmed by the amount of good initiatives, good people and positive change stories happening right now on Planet Earth. With all the “doom and gloom” talk, we need to constantly remind ourselves that positive change is happening. So many people are doing good things for their community, for the environment, for society in general.

Earth Calling is about change makers. Human beings that really stand out, and stories that go beyond. The idea is to provide you with a shot of inspiration and positive vibes whenever you need it. Take five minutes out of your day to recharge your batteries.
