Redefining Capitalism with Ecosia: 

the Green Search Engine

Ruby Au, Head of Ecosia North America 

Ecosia is a green search engine and certified B-Corp that reinvests 100% of its profits into tree planting and climate action. To do this, the team at Ecosia thinks about capitalism– and a company's role within it– in a fundamentally different way. In this session, Ruby Au, Head of Ecosia North America, breaks down the nuance and implications of "shareholder capitalism" for purpose-driven companies.

RUBY AU is the Head of North America at Ecosia, where she is responsible for Ecosia's market strategy across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Prior to joining Ecosia, Ruby worked in Kenya's social impact & tech startup scene, where she launched the African office for the Linux-based Endless Operating System. She also founded and exited Lumen Labs, a Nairobi-based EdTech company and social impact startup. Ruby holds dual degrees in Business and Environmental Science from the University of Southern California.

WED  10:30—11:30 AM  OVERCONSUMPTION & POLLUTION | CHILDREN & THE FUTURE

Oceans, Plastic, Climate, & Kids:

How learning ZeroWaste habits and pedaling (when possible) is a gift to the future 

with Tim Oey

Tim will recount how he has re-engineered his life and show you how you can too, so together we can conquer the climate challenge and leave the greatest inheritance ever imagined.

TIM OEY runs ZeroW.org to help people learn how to save spaceship Earth's life support system by pursuing Zero Waste -- saving our environment, oceans, climate, money, and lives. Zero Waste means working to eliminate trash and pollution and doing our best to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. All waste is money lost. His household of 3 humans and 3 dogs is down to about a quart of trash a month. His solar powered electric home generates more electricity than it consumes and his transportation is almost fossil fuel free as well -- mainly bicycles and an electric car. In 2019 he did a 5000 mile business trip by bicycle from San Francisco to Boston to deliver 254 talks across the US about Oceans, Plastic, Climate Change, and Kids.

tUrn is pleased to host the North American Jesuit Conference Office of Justice & Ecology COP26 Group Forum in our 9:15 AM (PST) Monday morning panel and on Wednesday, October 13 at 4 PM (PST) 

PANEL II:

Moving from Complicity and Complacency to Action 

tUrn welcomes the Jesuit Conference of North America Office of Justice & Ecology COP26 Working Group, for a panel curated by Cecilia Calvo focused on eco-conversion, in the lead-up to November's United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties, UNCCCOP or COP.

This session focuses on the Church's role in faith-based solidarity in action.

Moved by the voices of communities most harmed by the extraction of fossil fuels and the climate crisis, we recognize our complicity and shake off our complacency. We will consider how the Church can inspire and lead climate action, with concrete examples of solidarity with communities experiencing the brunt of our extractive mentality and a simple action we all can take as a next step in our ecological conversion.

With Cecliia Calvo, Moderator
