Dedicated teachers often talk about building meaningful connections with students as an important part of a successful teaching experience. For those teaching outside their own countries, forming these kinds of connections frequently involves taking additional steps to overcome cultural and language barriers.

Like many of us, Fearless Fund’s Alyson Myers is passionate about the work she does. She and her team are currently working under a Department of Energy grant to grow macroalgae for conversion to fuel—a project that could lead to massive breakthroughs in the production of energy, feed, and raw materials. Out of necessity, the team prioritizes project work rather than the publicizing of that work. Yet for this team and many others, sharing that kind of information is frequently a key to establishing new partnerships, unlocking opportunities, resolving challenges, inspiring others, and ultimately moving forward. When our work itself is all-consuming, how can we easily amplify it for continued innovation? Hear what Alyson has to say in this two-minute video.
In this interview, artist Margot Fass explains that frogs are an integral part of the food web, and like bats, they eat ticks, mosquitoes, and other disease vectors. They also are important because they are bio-indicators: “They give us an idea of what will surely happen to us as well, if we don’t change our ways,” she says.
