David Takahashi practices what he preaches – he converted his home to run on renewable energy and batteries, and use no natural gas. His father-in-law was Dr. Charles Keeling, who created the famous Keeling Curve that measures accumulation of CO2 in the atmosphere, which has been called one of the most important scientific advances of the 20th century. David is connected in a variety of communities, and is currently working to involve the interfaith community in climate activism.

Jock Gilchrist is a researcher and writer, currently pursuing an MS through Johns Hopkins in International Climate Policy. Jock has worked in healthcare, life coaching, and climate activism. He is working with Hunter to produce a report on Colorado’s economy to highlight the ways in which it is already regenerative, and dispel myths about the economic stranglehold of extractive industries in the state.
Allison Sturm is a skilled networker and manager, currently pursuing an MBA at CU Boulder’s Leeds School of Business. She spent years in New Zealand helping manage a sustainable tourism agency before realizing she wanted to gain a greater understanding of entrepreneurism and sustainability in business.
