In a nutshell "What Can I Do?" Spaceship Earth is about being more mindful of our actions.

- Bill McKibben Best selling author and founder of 350.org

Billboard Magazine award recipient, Laurie Dameron’s profound connection with nature is the inspiration behind her presentation “What Can I Do?” Spaceship Earth. Combining her love of art, music and nature she has created a multimedia production with simple ideas that will compel you to action. She features the stunning photography of renowned John Fielder and Karl Snyder and also the trailer for Colorado’s own Suzan Beraza’s award winning documentary “Bag It”. Dameron delivers in a unique way that it is essential for us to stop being a “disposable society”. Her music has been called brilliant. Her song “What Can I Do?” made it to the top ten finalists in the 2011 Tipperary World Peace Song Contest. More recently she passed the first round of auditions for America’s Got Talent in Denver in December of 2013. Laurie was the winner of the EPA Region 8 (Environmental Protection Agency Denver Office) Earth Day Video Contest 2015 “Dying of Human Souls”

“The boiling frog story is a widespread anecdote describing a frog slowly being boiled. The premise is that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death. The story is often used as a metaphor for the inability or unwillingness of people to react to significant changes that occur gradually.”

Whether or not you accept the premise that humans are contributing to global climate change, it is clear that our “disposable society” is quickly depleting our irreplaceable resources.

This is a fun way to be inspired to be better stewards and offers simple solutions we can take immediate action on!
