Climate Solutions
Derek Hoshiko works with individuals and groups through story and conversation to engage their passions and to bring integrity more fully into their lives and their work, so their values truly serve them. He enjoys helping people navigate our changing world, to make social change fun, and to help people go beyond changing light bulbs—or just change their light bulbs. He graduated summa cum laude with a degree in Computer Science and Engineering from the University of Colorado at Denver, where he later completed a Master’s degree. Derek lives on Whidbey Island with his wife and son.

As the urgency of the climate crisis has deepened, Derek has sought to take actions and advocate for actions that are relevant to the scale of the problem, and he believes that racial equity and addressing privilege may be the only way to create meaningful change in time.
