Welcome to my new blog, where you will find thoughts and analysis of major environmental, social, and political trends affecting our futures and those of the voiceless billions around the world. I’ll do my best to keep it current and new, and I hope that you share (or will share) my belief that intractable problems can only be solved with creative, collaborative, and bold new ideas – and I would also love to hear yours.

Welcome again, and looking forward to learning your thoughts and perspectives as I share mine,

Mey Akashah
