Want to hear this list explained, with some examples? Here’s a 9 minute walk-through I did.
Here at Sunflower News we want to help you overcome information overload, but there’s still a whole lot to read on this site! Once you find something interesting, how can you make use of it? Here are a list of ways we heard people around the climate movement tell us they want to use the news coming through Sunflower, when we interviewed them to inform our creation of the site. What other ideas can you imagine? What else have you tried? Let us know!
This is our list of ways we’ve heard people aspire to use the information on Sunflower, leading up to our launch. See the bottom of this post if you want to hear me walk through the list in a video with examples and explanations.
