Dan Porras

I’m interested in how human communities shape and are shaped by landscapes and ecosystems. After getting my master's degree in ecological economics and development I had the opportunity to do communications work with Indigenous and local communities around the world. I've also been active for 15 years with renewable energy, helping to bring solar power to off-grid communities in sub-Saharan Africa and working to create a lower-impact supply chain for the transition to clean energy. I started Artivist in 2016 to create a way for people to use their art to push for positive change in the world.
