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.
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.
