Dad’s are in a unique position to affect change for the better. For our families, our communities, for "the economic integrity of the planet" upon which all our futures depend.
IN 2016, WE ARE FOCUSING ON FOOD
Where does it come from? What’s in it? Where will it come from? Are insects on the menu? Really? How much water does it take for a pint of beer? Really? What are the pros and cons of genetically engineered foods? What are the challenges and opportunities we need to face? How do we learn from and with our children to make better decisions that help bring a about a bright future?
THE BASIC PREMISE
It’s the 21st century. We know enough about the world’s natural systems to share how they work. We’re learning what it means to be native to a place and to be a part of nature — not apart from it. We’re learning to value and respect the multitude of ways of knowing and being human on earth because diversity equals resilience.
WHO ARE ECODADS?
A growing group of sustainably-minded dads, who don't support a lot of BS, refuse to spoon-swallow media sound-bytes, like to offer their kids a sense of context and discernment, while teaching them how to think on their feet, roll-up their sleeves and get things done. Active Group Members are from array of different industries (media, film, education, the arts, transportation, scrap metal, bar owners, technology, social media, farming, real estate, sports, ice cream, advertising, finance and more).
