Join Michael this week on Side A of The FlipSide as he welcomes Sebastian Africano, executive director of Trees Water & People. Trees, Water & People has been a leader in not only reforestation in Latin America, but also in the design and distribution of clean cook stoves and other clean energy products which greatly reduce the use of natural resources for energy creation. Sebastian holds an MBA from Colorado State University, where he is also Affiliate Faculty with the Warner College of Natural Resources. As a kid, he was exposed to Columbian Vallenato music through his dad’s band. Road trips with his parents also meant listening to The Monkees, Billy Joel, and, thanks to his mom, Julio Inglesias. But all that changed with his first Sony Walkman! And boy, what a change it was! Get to know The FlipSide of Sebastian Africano!
