Ooh, if only I knew! I think the issues I respond to most strongly are those related to environmental justice, or the areas where social and ecological sustainability intersect most directly. Sustainable and equitable urban development has been my most recent area of interest. Buzzwords like community, diversity, participation, and collaboration make me feel all warm and fuzzy. Their manifestation in real life sometimes makes my heart explode.
Wherever I can! Recent sources have been the Sierra Club events calendar, several Cal alumni listservs, Meet Up groups, Women's Environmental Network, and other non-profit newsletters.
Topics of interest: food justice, urban development / smart growth, transportation solutions
Recent graduate interested in conservation, public policy, and sustainable communities. Long on enthusiasm and curiosity, short on formal work history, eager to learn about careers where I can help protect the planet and improve people's lives.
