Introduction

24 year old M. Environment student with some work/internship experience in non-profit, academia, and government (Public Health Agency of Canada)

How and/or where did you first hear out about this Meetup group?

Meetup.com

What was it that got you interested in sustainability?

In all seriousness, the Bible and a movie called Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind

How are you engaging in sustainable living at work and at home?

I am into homesteading/minimalist living, advocacy/volunteering in the committee, and am currently occupied with writing a thesis on integration of EcoCity, Healthy City, and Age-Friendly Cities research for a concrete, urban development model - and refining the model through engagement with individuals with known preference for suburban sprawl.

What do you see as the biggest challenges facing our community with regard to creating a sustainable future?

Good, sustainable practices which bring comfort and sense of progress, but ultimately cannot match the scale of the issues facing humanity.
