Adam Met is a modern-day renaissance man. Readers might know him best as the bassist from the indie pop band AJR, but music is only one of his many talents. Met also holds undergraduate degrees in business and philosophy, a Master’s degree in constitutional religious law, and a PhD in international human rights law. Using his fame as a force for good, he founded Planet Reimagined in 2021. This environmental advocacy organization provides fellowships and training for up-and-coming voices in climate research and advocacy.
Met himself made good on the organization’s claim earlier this year, when he met with a bipartisan group of congresspeople to find common ground on environmental policy. Working with both Democrats and Republican representatives, Met discovered that more than six million acres of federal land are ideally suited to renewable solar and wind energy installations. Fans of Met’s music need not worry, either, as AJR is also hard at work on a stage adaptation of the children’s book Harold and the Purple Crayon.
Met also had a recommendation for eco-minded Worth readers: “Come learn about Planet Reimagined’s unique approach to bridging research and advocacy, and how you can be a more effective leader on climate change and beyond.”
