Kai Whiting is the author of the new book, Being Better: Stoicism for a World Worth Living In. Kai is a lecturer and researcher in environmental sustainability and Stoicism at UC Louvain, Belgium. To relax, he likes to build Legos, enjoys watching the kids program Lego Ninjago in multiple languages and reading Robert Muchamore’s Cherub series in Portuguese. His favorite music bands are Duran Duran and Soda Stereo, both of whom were famous before he was born. If money were no object, he would plant enough trees to tackle climate breakdown, rescue foxes and red pandas, and buy the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.
