On October 11, 2019. Jessica was invited as a guest speaker to talk about her Museum of Tomorrow entrepreneurial journey to her fellow Climate Corps fellows.
Climate Corps is a fellowship spanning across counties in North, East & South Bay where emerging sustainability leaders serve at different sites. It is under the umbrella of a Nationwide volunteer program, AmeriCorps.
Fellows serve at various sites working on diverse sustainability issues including energy, city plans, education, conservation and much more! The fellows come together once a month for a Professional Development Day. On this day, the fellows gathered at San Francisco PG&E’s outreach center.
It was admist the PG&E electricity shutdown across Norther California due to projected heavy windstorms, which added a different meaning to the fellow’s learning. Nonetheless, fellows learned a bit on PG&E’s unconventional decision along with the sundial and how they conserve resources on a daily basis.
The day-long training session was wrapped with Jessica’s speech on Museum of Tomorrow, her motivation for founding it, and how she took an idea to a budding start-up. Jessica strives inspire and empower behavioral change through curatorial experiences after observing the trends of colorful pop-up museums like Museum of Ice Cream. As Jessica predicted, her Museum attracted the young population and has inspired 500 people to step into the sustainability journey in just four short days. Now her popup is gaining more traction than ever with organizations lining up for partnerships, including Spare the Air campaigns and the David Brower Center.
The training ended in high spirit with a newly inspired bunch of climate warriors working together for a better tomorrow.
