Sam Van Leer, the president and founder of the nonprofit Urban Paradise Guild (UPG), asks how can we fight the causes and effects of climate change while making Miami a better place to live today? Instead of solutions that exclude the public and allow big business to shape policy, Van Leer examines how everyone can get involved in projects such as restoring natural habitats, introducing urban agriculture for low-income families, and engaging the public and local leaders to find new ways to protect the environment. Van Leer has himself led efforts likes these at various parks and urban areas around the county, including ACE Preserve, Amelia Earhart Park, and Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
