Erik van Lennep’s entrepreneurial spirit has taken him around the globe in an effort to “design organizations, campaigns, education strategies and more.” His efforts have resulted in the founding of the Rainforest Action Network in San Francisco; directing the Arctic
 to Amazonia Alliance; the founding of Cultivate, Ireland’s center for sustainability; and the founding of TEPUI, a design collaborative that proposes to bring together sustainable economics with sustainable energy, climate response, and food security.
