Danny Diskin

Director, RAIN

Danny Diskin is the founder and co-director of RAIN (Regenerative Agroforestry Impact Network), a reforestation charity he set up after getting sick and getting better amongst the trees of the Amazonian rainforest. RAIN supports community-led ecosystem regeneration and food security projects with Indigenous nations, black women in urban slums, and other marginalised communities in Brazil.

For Danny, the networked intelligence of an interconnected global collective is our best hope for meeting the challenges we fail to meet as individuals. He is bringing his background in education, anthropology and therapy to the task of removing barriers to communication and cooperation between people separated by language, culture and centuries of colonial history.
