Impact Narrative

Victoria’s  proposal:

“I am an executive coach and management consultant. (My work website is A friend and I recently started a pro bono “climate change coaching group.” Our goal is to help people who are concerned about climate change (and we believe that population is a major driver of climate change) but confused about how to take action, figure out how they can best contribute, based on their personal skills and interests.

We just completed our pilot program and decided to include a bigger education piece going forward. We realized that even people who are concerned about climate change often do not know much about it. So we will use your book to help people in our program better understand population growth and its effect on the world and the world’s climate. It will become part of the “lending library” of relevant books that we are putting together for people in our program, which means that your book would be leveraged – each new group of people would have the opportunity to borrow it. (Our pilot program consisted of 10 people, but ultimately we plan to scale up the program.)”
