Do you have an environmental issue close to your heart that you would like to share?

The world water crisis and local water issues. I also have a deep concern about environmental issues in Brazil, especially in the Mata Atlantica, cerrado and Pantanal regions. I am also involved in developing programs for teaching English Language Learners through the environment.

What's your favorite inspiring story of something good happening for the earth?

I am inspired by the life of Chico Mendes who was murdered by ranchers and landowners opposed to his work to protect the rainforest and rubber tree workers whose livelihoods depended on the preservation of the Amazon.

What would you like to get out of Community Green's Meetups?

A network of similar minded people who are committed and engaged, opportunities for new friendships and group activities/green events.
