Started Grist 20 years ago Grist is the first wholly online media source on the environment that uses humor and irreverence to tell the story and share climate solutions. Today they have more than 2 million readers – half of which are millennials. Each year through their unique Fix program, Grist identifies 50 Fixers, young frontline leaders and entrepreneurs across disciplines who have proven results.
With our interests in developing emerging leaders, building strong partnerships, and using storytelling to drive action and impact, we partnered with Grist to build a New England hub for the Fix program. Fix will facilitate events that convene Fixers from diverse backgrounds to generate, “that-just-might-work” ideas to tackle thorny problems such as climate change and environmental injustice. The program brings these Fixers together to break down silos, develop leaderships, spark collaborations to accelerate solutions, and share stories of what’s possible and working.
