I’m Lindsay Nunez, Climate Writer, Activist, and Founder of Save Our Happy Place.
I’m an environmental and climate activist living in New York City with the POV that consistent sustainable activism comes from a place of hope, optimism, and gratitude for the planet we live on.
I was born and raised in New Orleans where my love for nature and sustainability began. I spent my free time enjoying the great outdoors and getting to intimately know the local flora and fauna with my mother who is a retired biology teacher.
While NYC might not seem like a haven for nature lovers, it has fast-tracked my progression into activism. The passion, resources, community, and accessibility in NYC cannot be beaten. Pre-Pandemic during my lunch breaks, I’d walk across midtown to whichever protests were igniting in front of the BlackRock, NY Times, UN, or Citi Bank Buildings.
After helping Earth Week NYC 2020 transition from an in-person protest to a completely online endeavor, I became enamored with the tools, accessibility, and reach digital activism can have - Thus the creation of Save Our Happy Place.
The scale and reach needed to save our planet are massive, so I know finding a place within the climate movement that resonates with you can be challenging. We try to create an inclusive and approachable environment that lends itself to growing the climate movement by bringing on people that might otherwise have found activism out of reach.
