ABOUT THE GREEN FIX
The Green Fix is dedicated to investigating and reporting on sustainable solutions for the current problems facing our society.
The Green Fix has two main sections dedicated to solutions. The first covers solutions for sustainable cities. Our society is steadily becoming more urbanized and the way that our cities are planned represents a huge opportunity to help the majority of the planet's population be more sustainable. This section will also cover ways to make cities more just, more prosperous, and happier places to live.
The Green Fix is also dedicated to seeking solutions to keep our wild places truly wild. This website began in 2016 with a different title and purpose, and it was dedicated to inspiring people to get outdoors more often and connect with nature. Since then the importance of protecting nature, and ensuring that those who love it are well-equipped to protect it, has become a more pressing concern and the focus of this website has shifted. The love of the outdoors never fades, though, and this section will feature stories that directly affect our wild places as well as stories about people enjoying the wilderness.
The third focus of the Green Fix is on policy - current policy shifts, past policies that brought us to where we are, and how new policies and programs could help save our future.
