A study conducted in Taiwan revealed that 92% of respondents were interested in growing some of their own food. 78% of urbanites thought it would be a great opportunity for retirement and 22% for business opportunities. Earth Passengers was founded as a non-profit to educate the public on sustainable practices, including the promotion of local food, energy conservation, and environmental conservation. It has also conducted teacher training programs about solar cookers and promoted the building of rooftop vegetable gardens to insulate homes. Imagine: a city of gardens and solar cookers!

With a flair for spontaneity, pizzazz, creative excellence and her own unique sense of aesthetic grace and perspective, we have our very dear friend, Belinda (or B, to some of us). Although an incredibly accomplished professional and career woman, B’s down-to-earth approach and demeanor transcends all scenarios, communities and people. She manifests, in her day-to-day, the essence of the word “Zomppa” as demonstrated by her extraordinary commitment to creating sustainable and positive change for us and future generations to come. She’s asked for a dog every year since she was five. Check out Belinda’s work on global education research and coaching: www.hummingbirdrcc.com or more about her portfolio www.belindachiu.com.
