Interview with Jack Policar of The Climate Wiki on the Opportunity in Tech on Ecology

Today Ian welcomes Jack Policar to the Conscious Design podcast. Jack first introduces himself and then talks about why he sees tech as a way to let more people know about the issues of ecology around us and spread awareness. Jack then talks about how he tries to aid companies who try to join in on the movement but have a bit of trouble orienting themselves. Jack then describes how he tries to support people and build a network in which each of them can grow. Jack also mentions one of the positives of having a community as you don’t have to reinvent the wheel each time but solutions can be shared. Jack shares that his project is already seeing massive interest even if it’s just in the beta phase. In the guest outro Jack talks about where you can find him and invites people to do so.
