I’m not quite sure what I want fully want to accomplish with this website, but I have some ideas. First off, I’d like to use this as a median for which I can become more knowledgable about international environmental issues and what is being done by various groups/governments to address these issues. Second, I hope to convey the importance of global sustainability and give people a reason to care about the environment. This one will be rather difficult, in my mind, because most of us in the Western world are so removed from these issues that they don’t seem to matter to us. They do matter, and I want to figure out a way to stress that. Finally, I’d like to improve my writing.
A little about myself: I currently work as a research analyst for an environmental non-profit called the Environmental Integrity Project, where I do a lot of work generating and managing data to support the work of our attorneys. I love languages, even though I speak only English as of right now, but I’m currently learning Russian with plans to learn Dutch and Spanish in the future. The environment is something that I care about, and I plan to make a career out of promoting environmental justice and global sustainability.
I hope you enjoy these posts and please feel free to give suggestions, corrections, or different opinions, I’m an open-minded person and I welcome critique in hopes that it makes me a better writer.
