A Wild & Precious World
A call to action from Jerome Rankine and Melanie Walby of Pollen Midwest


It’s more about organizing than organics recycling. It’s more activism than electric vehicles. It’s environmental justice, and though justice comes second in the phrase, it comes first in the work.


Story 1, Story 2, Story 3

Pollen Live | A Wild and Precious World is the culmination of three stories that explore different aspects of the environmental justice movement — the ongoing work to not only heal what ails our planet, but to do so in a way that centers the communities most impacted by environmental challenges, big and small.

Read our feature stories on Ben and Janiece, Cecilia Martinez and Louis Alemayehu then get your tickets to see this stellar lineup of movement builders live on stage at Pollen Live | A Wild and Precious World.
