We would be honored if you would consider being a featured guest for our Visionary Solutions Series. In this series we are discussing innovative concepts, ideas, projects, products, services, systems and technologies focused on providing solutions to the social and environmental challenges we are currently facing on the planet. Visionary Solutions is one of our primary channels for the Local Earth Discussion Series.  Local Earth is a nonprofit organization focused on environmental stewardship and regenerative community development.  This discussion series is part of the Earth 2.0 Research Project.  Please see the discussion outline and requirements below.

Discussion Agreement & Requirements

  • 45-90 minute virtual conversation with host Joshua Alvord recorded on Zoom
  • The recording will be shared on various social media channels
  • Quiet place with good light and solid internet connection
  • Computer or laptop with quality video and sound (headset or microphone is beneficial, yet not required)
  • You have have the opportunity to promote projects you are working on and share the recording of our discussion with anyone you would like

Test Zoom Call

  • We will schedule a brief test Zoom at least 1 week prior to our ‘official’ scheduled discussion
  • This will only require 5-10 minutes to test our computer equipment compatibility for audio and video
  • We can also use this opportunity to brainstorm a few talking points we would like to cover in our discussion
  • For our test Zoom please be in the same location and use the same equipment that you will be using for our official recorded discussion so we can evaluate the lighting, background and audio levels
  • If possible it would be nice for you to be in a well lit space with natural or warm lighting and a visually pleasing backdrop (tapestry, plant, artwork, etc.)
  • The focus and priority of our recorded discussion is the quality and content of our conversation not the video quality – yet we will do our best to make sure the audio and video is as professional as possible with the equipment we have available
  • Feel free to take a look at some our past discussion recordings to get a feel for the format – the current process is slightly modified yet this link provides a general idea of the format (local-earth.org/discussions)

Q&A (Optional)

  • If desired we can host a short interactive Q&A session 2-4 weeks after our initial discussion (approximately 30 minutes)
  • This provides people with several weeks to watch the discussion recording and ask us questions on a public interactive Zoom webinar
