Resources for sustainability

Do you want more information? Here are additional resources for sustainability projects, climate change and growth in Mexico and elsewhere in the world. Check out the links and tools below.


Search with AI

As of 2024, we highly recommend that you use Artificial Intelligence (AI) when searching the web for specific information on how climate change, over-development and population growth affect communities and humanity. When you prompt AI tools with carefully-crafted, focused questions, they can save you hours of time finding relevant, factual and engaging articles.

AI is also extremely useful in suggesting ideas and strategies, such as an action plan or a list of things you can do to help make a difference.

These are Travler’s current recommendations for AI tools that can help you develop your own resources for sustainability projects, climate change, environmental and related issues:

  • Perplexity.ai, for research, relevance, factual references, citations, conversational style and simple interface. Free for basic use; subscribe for advanced features and image generation.
  • ChatGPT, probably the best-known AI, for its strengths in conversation and culture, detailed replies. Chat GPT is great for generating ideas and brainstorming. Free for basic use; subscribe for advanced features and image generation.
  • GPT-4, OpenAI’s latest tool, more accurate and relevant responses, tailored to scientists and researchers. Subscription required.
  • Google Gemini, strong competitor to ChatGPT, for its ability to understand and extrapolate from the user’s inputs, and return accurate, nuanced answers. Gemini is most effective if you are a Google Apps user. It’s also strong in translation and multi-language. Free for basic use; subscribe for advanced features and software generation.
  • Microsoft CoPilot, based on ChatGPT and tightly integrated with Microsoft Apps like Office 365 and Outlook. If you use Microsoft apps this is a good choice for AI that will better understand you and provide more tailored responses. Free for basic personal use; subscribe for a Pro version.

It’s important to understand that AI tools, like search engines, require extensive computing power at data centers. This means AI has a significant carbon footprint. As an environmentally-focused nonprofit, Travler believes the trade-off of computer time and efficiencies that our work gains from using AI most likely results in a strong net benefit to the environment, versus our minuscule share of the carbon footprint required by the AI engine.


The United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development Goals

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, is a global blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet.

The UN Agenda details 17 different “Sustainable Development Goals” targeted at ending poverty, improving health and education, securing justice and safety in communities, reducing inequality, and spurring economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
