EarthSayers.tv, the voices of sustainability, brings forward video programs, primarily through aggregation, from across the Internet. They are the voices of experts, business leaders, teachers, wisdom keepers, and citizens from all walks of life. Each of the 1,300 plus programs has been curated for relevancy and quality. Each has been categorized using a taxonomy or “Content Map” developed specifically for sustainability to impact page results on major keywords and phrases such as global warming, transforming our economy, and one water.
We are seeking partners who wish to private label our Content Management System (CMS) and robust video collection for incorporation into their web environment as a "video magazine" or .tv channel. We provide the capacity to manage and promote their original content and integrate their content with ours in whole or part. Our mutual objective is to educate, motivate and inspire stakeholders and Web visitors on sustainability.
Non-profit organizations may use the platform to generate revenues from their sponsors and partners.
EarthSayers.tv is happy to partner with select companies and events for mutual promotion.

Ruth Ann is the founder, producer and curator of EarthSayers.tv, the voices of sustainability. She brings twenty-five years of experience marketing high tech products to the challenge of moving sustainability into the mainstream of both thought and action. Her love and advocacy for Mother Earth grew out of her learning to sail at a very early age in very contaminated waters and continuing with the sport for over sixty years, most recently as a single handed sailor on San Francisco Bay.
JoAnne is the creator of EarthSayer's sustainability taxonomy. In the 1980's, JoAnne was a pioneer in interactive instructional design, winning national awards and attention. In the 1990's she pursued her doctoral degree, asking, How can we create more socially responsible and effective business organizations? She became involved with Peter Senge's Society for Organizational Learning at MIT and, with two business executives, co–authored The Power of Collaborative Leadership, a book that looks at organizational change efforts from the inside-out.
Continuing her pursuit of knowledge, Dr. O'Brien–Levin collaborated with a Native American spiritual teacher to author a second book, Business Revolution through Ancestral Wisdom, that explores how indigenous wisdom can help transform business. She also served as editor for a third book, In the Leadership Mode: Concepts, Practices, and Tools for a Different Leadership, which puts forward a new view of leadership that is distinct from management and provides tools to help more people enact leadership to achieve real change. In 2010, JoAnne co-founded Business TreX with the intention of bringing business leaders together for transformational explorations of a new business paradigm based in Nature. Business TreX is a unique collaboration, bringing JoAnne's perspectives together with those of a biologist and a businessman, and uses the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador as its classroom.
