How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
I am the co-founder of Stop Smart Meters Nevada County. I heard about the dangers of the Smart Meters but didn't really understand the dangers until there were 6 meters on my home and made me very ill. Smart Meters are not smart, they are not green, they are not safe and they are not legal.

What aspects of the sustainability movement most interests you?
■The challenges we face are not just caused by a mistake in our technologies but as a direct result of our world view and belief system.
■The impact of the information about the state of our planet can generate fear and grief - which may underlie the state of denial that many people are caught in.
■Psychological models can help us understand what is really happening and avoid unconscious processes sabotaging change, e.g. addictions models, models for behavioural change.
■This principle also honours the fact that Transition thrives because it enables and supports people to do what they are passionate about, what they feel called to do.
