How might your current work contribute to the sustainability movement?
Website and web application design to support calculating/lowering personal and regional carbon footprints, building communities, support, networking, resource sharing, skill finding, etc.
Teaching what needs to be taught to both the leaders and the masses...in English and Spanish.
Bridging cultural boundaries for synergy, support and outreach
In what ways do you personally identify with the Sustainability & Transition movement? Why are you interested?
I've lived in both indigenous and foreign cultures to experience and learn about the power and importance of community. Not only do I believe this most-important fabric of society is broken is most regions of the US, but also that we've forgotten how to do community, why it's important, etc.
For 25+ years, I've been studying global issues such as carbon emissions. Not only do I believe something like this movement is loooong overdue(!), but that the survival of most of the species on the planet (including humans) depends on it.
What background and skills do you bring to this community?
Web design/programming, technical consulting, teaching, leadership/group facilitation, team/community building, leadership/relationship/spiritual life coaching, mentoring, healing, process development/streamlining, drumming/musical, bilingual Spanish, intercultural, edible/medicinal plants
