Speaker. Connector. Mentor.
Working between sectors and industries, Barney Swan brings together strategies to reduce our environmental impact- whilst aligning with sustainable development practices. Bridging outdoor stewardship, and conscious business practices, he is on a mission to design a more sustainable future. In 2017 he skied 1000 kilometres over 65 days to the South Pole, surviving using NASA designed solar ice melters, lithium batteries, and biofuel made from waste. The carbon positive journey marked the launch of the ClimateForce challenge, a collabrative mission to ‘clean-up’ 360 million tons of CO2 before the year 2025.
Below are 6 ways to reduce your impact as a human-
Grow More -
Whether it be promoting more plants in the office, a community garden, or investing in a forest, we need more green!
Consider the Source -
Use your wallet wisely. Choose for the local brand, support your community, and sustainable products. Think about the logistics and packaging. There is nothing wrong with second hand.
Be effective. Say no -
Make it clear that you do not need something. No more junk mail. No more straws. Use your refillable bottle instead of saying yes to a plastic one.

Eat Wisely -
We make a decision 3 times a day on what to fuel our bodies with. Consider meat alternatives and explore new recipes.
Get creative, educate others -
It can be fun to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Second hand store treasure hunt, making DIY projects out of home resources, or create employee/student inventives.
Findings oneself in wild elements brings balance to my life. Interacting within the outdoors, whether willingly or not, connects one to your surroundings and self. That ‘connection’ is my source of motivation to regenerate our rapidly changing environment.

After the game, the king and the pawn go into the same box.
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
