“Philanthro-activism” for the Planet: Justin Winters – Co-Founder & Executive Director of One Earth

Imagine an online marketplace that puts you in the driver’s seat of real worldwide change– allowing you to take direct control and make an impact on the causes you care about most– simply with the click of a mouse. That’s what Co-Founder & Executive Director Justin Winters and her team are building at One Earth, a global organization working to galvanize science, advocacy, and philanthropy to drive collective action on climate change. In this episode, she shares how science has revealed a solution to the climate crisis and how each of us can take action to course correct our future in our own lifetimes.

Justin Winters:

Justin Winters is dedicated to ensuring the long-term health and well-being of all Earth’s inhabitants by building climate resilience, protecting wildlife and restoring balance to ecosystems and communities. For the past 15 years, she’s worked to accelerate grassroots environmental efforts through cutting-edge philanthropic mechanisms and strategic communications work. She is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of One Earth, an organization working to galvanize science, advocacy and philanthropy to drive collective action on climate change. Motivated by the belief that everyone should have agency in being a part of the climate solution, Justin and the One Earth team launched the Project Marketplace database, a crowdfunding platform that disrupts the traditional philanthropy model by enabling individuals and donors at all levels to directly support critical climate solutions projects all over the world, with a special focus on Indigenous and women- led initiatives. Prior to One Earth, Justin was the Executive Director of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (LDF). For well over a decade, Justin helped Leonardo reshape his approach to philanthropy and activism, leveraging his position as a global figure to influence decision-makers and the public on the most pressing environmental issues. She currently serves on the boards of Amazon Frontlines and The Solutions Project and was selected as part of Worth Magazine’s 2022 Worthy 100 list of impactful leaders and changemakers. Through her collaborative, inclusive and entrepreneurial approach, Justin is radically shifting the current resource paradigm and building a broad public movement of engaged and inspired changemakers who together will help solve the climate crisis and build a vibrant, just future for us all.
