Josh Huffman has been working in film and tv production in New York since he was a baby faced college graduate. After 2020 solidified his face into that of a wizened old man, he began working with the studios and local crews to make productions carbon neutral, trying to change the system from within while only slightly compromising his morals. email@example.com

Lisa Pettibone is a teacher, writer, and sustainability geek living with her husband and their teenager in Berlin. She has taught sustainability topics at universities across Germany, and facilitated the Stories From the Future in 2020. She still can’t believe we achieved carbon-neutrality by 2030, but is thrilled to be able to spend more time on other aspects of the sustainability transition: building and realizing positive visions based on social and racial justice and degrowth principles. @lisapettibone
