Global inheritance, inc. Works to reinvent activism for today's young generation. The various initiatives of the organization focus on the power of creativity to communicate and push for progressive social change while rejecting conflict.
Developed and executed a recycling store educational program for 10 different festivals across the united stated. Over 1 million people were reached and 500,000 bottles/cans/cups recycled by attendees interested in practicing positive recycling habits. People learned the value of recycling/compostable materials and what does and doesn't go to landfill while helping keep the festival grounds waste-free. Developed and produced a solar powered arcade at coachella music & arts festival. Highlighted different environmental issues through vintage 8 bit arcade games and asked attendees to complete an environmental questionnaire or a positive task (recycling, carpooling, creating energy, etc. ) to receive a token to play one of the arcade games.

Reviews for Global Inheritance Inc
I'm impressed by the light-hearted spirit, dedication to alternative energy education, and friendly, talented staff at Global Inheritance. While the organization is based in LA, its programs and initiatives extend nationwide. As a volunteer, I helped at G.I.'s tent at two music festivals in DC and San Francisco, working directly with staff members to set up equipment and to speak with concert-goers about G.I.'s work. It was a great opportunity to spread the word, interact with people face-to-face, and learn more about renewable energy. Beyond all of their critical work, it's clear that G.I. values its volunteers and tries to make the experience valuable and fun. I definitely plan on volunteering again!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
An educational and enjoyable volunteer experience that has inspired me to rethink my energy consumption.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Provide more literature about the organization, its programs and causes that volunteers and interested individuals can peruse and take home from the event. As a volunteer, I wanted to educate people about the specifics of GI's initiatives and more generally about energy consumption, but because I lack a background in those areas, I was unable to answer many of their questions. Educational brochures might help in that regard.

Would you recommend this group to a friend?
Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)
I met a number of new friends through these volunteer opportunities, which was an added perk!
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Volunteering for GI can be a lot of work-- music festivals are marathon events, after all-- but I felt that it was definitely worth it. I felt a great sense of accomplishment after each volunteer experience.
