A Note from Peter Arpin, RNN Founder & President
As we commemorate Earth Day and Earth Week 2017, Renewable Now Network (RNN) honors Planet Earth around the clock and around the year, through our mission of empowering and advancing sustainability as the foundation for global environmental, social and economic change and opportunity. We here at RNN are extending the officially designated Earth Week through our own March for Science by reinforcing sustainability as the cornerstone to our philosophy, values, and vision and the key to the world's short and long-term success, and by celebrating our own exciting milestones.
Our New Website - RenewableNowNetwork
First, we are proud to unveil the first phase of our new and enhanced website showcasing an informative and resource-rich platform on anything and everything sustainable, how "green" touches each and every part of our daily lives, and how we can harness the wilderness of opportunity that it presents to all. The website's wide variety of domains range from Broadcast, Business and Living, to Food, Education, Building, and Transportation, with specific categories falling under each area to highlight thought leadership, events, initiatives and programs across all industry sectors in business, government, academia, philanthropy, and lifestyle. Stay tuned for an ongoing series of updates from me highlighting the multitude of media channels, programs, events, and resources to learn more about anything and everything sustainable.
Masters of Sustainability & "The Business Side of Green"
A new program to highlight includes the RNN Masters of Sustainability Webinar Series, presenting leading innovators from different companies and organizations sharing their very applicable lessons on how to incorporate sustainability into your business and life goals, as well as on how to leverage it for capital gain. Our speakers thus far include the pioneer of an entirely new automotive category, the founder and leader of a solar energy transportation company, and the head of the Climate Action Business Association. Masters of Sustainability is the ideal program for companies to promote corporate social responsibility endeavors, while also engaging with like-minded audience and increasing its own audience's engagement and reach. We also continue to interview these "Masters" and more on my radio show & podcast "The Business Side of Green."
GLOBAL CITIZENS OF SUSTAINABILITY - EVENTS & PROGRAMS
We remain actively engaged in our local community and the international community to influence and shape policy, change the conversation, and ignite action. Most immediately, we are in the process of building out our new offices in Providence, Rhode Island. As we look ahead to the fall, we hope you mark your calendars for the RNN FULL-SWING Golf Tournament for Sustainability on Saturday, September 9, 2017 at Button Hole Golf, in Providence, Rhode Island.

THE RNN SOCIAL CONVERSATION
We are always looking for new lessons from leaders around the globe through the plethora of media, business, and entertainment resources available for sustainability gurus. At the top of the RNN Book Club/reading list is Climate of Hope from former Mayor of New York City and world-renowned entrepreneur and philanthropist Michael Bloomberg and former head of the Sierra Club Carl Pope. This book promises to not only be a rich and interesting read, but also a source of renewed motivation for meaningful action and change. Let's discuss this and what's on your reading list, as well as other highly relevant sustainability topics and issues, on our social media channels, so join our conversation on Facebook and Twitter.
Join us in RNN's celebration of Earth Week this week and all-year long, so that this annual commemoration becomes a daily ritual and practice to treasure each and every day. As we forge ahead disrupting and transforming the path to a clean global economy and the preservation of our beautiful Earth - RNN is here to guide, inspire, and empower you - every step of the way.
