There are organizations around the world producing films, interviews, and lectures addressing sustainability-related topics and doing it on a regular basis.

We created a Special Collections section to draw your attention to these organizations and the programs we have found particularly educational and inspirational.

EarthSayers.tv is happy to partner with select companies and events for mutual promotion and further development of special collections.

Email ruthann@earthsayers.tv for recommendations as to champions, big challenges, events and/or places you want to see called out on our site.
