About Alan J. Hesse
My conservation career started in 1992 when I helped set up and joined a University expedition to the Bolivian Amazon. What started out as a 3-month experience ended up being a life-changing inflection point that set my professional and personal course to the present day. My conservation experience was built bottom-up and hands-on, and includes field data collection and logistics, grassroots organization leadership and project management, community engagement and capacity building, M&E, training and behavior change, and lately climate education through authorship of graphic novels and other resources.

A bit late perhaps but congratulations @Flavia Martinelli on being a WH Connector!
Thanks for sharing this resource @Flavia Martinelli. I had come across it before and I believe it is a rare example of fact-based storytelling that truly reflects Global South perspectives. I too create graphic novels about climate change and in fact I'm working on my 5th one right now, which is 100% focused on Brazil. If interested I'd love to run it past you at some point!

Thank you Lize for going the extra mile calculating the time zones! Very good practice. See you all there.
Hi @Mitchell Rae pleased to meet you and congratulations for this event! Unfortunately for some reason it slipped under my radar but I'd love to know how it went. I too dedicate my efforts to communicating about climate and nature in ways that are engaging, effective and positive. Hopefully we can meet at one of the WH Socials some time to chat further.
Thanks for posting Lize and to both you and Lara for setting this up! Looking forward to the next Art Social!
Thanks for this fantastic learning opportunity, @Giuseppe Forestieri - I'll be there!
Thanks for setting this up Lize, I look forward to helping you welcome all contributors and visitors to this social! Might it be an idea to share the event on social media to invite non-members to also attend? If this is only for WH members that's fine.
