Why are you interested in the Transition movement?
I want to work on making cities into paragons of sustainability, food access, self reliance and environmental integration. This means I need to learn about and address urban problems with food, energy, transportation, education, water, and pollution all in a way where little to none of these resources come from outside the greater city areas. What better way to learn than by actually doing it?
How are you currently involved in the Transition movement?
I am an intern at Growing Power.
What skills, talents, and resources do you bring to the Transition movement?
I have experience in Urban soil testing for heavy toxic metals using ICP-MS and ICP-IR for contaminants such as lead, arsenic, nickel, and cadmium, and Cold Vapor Technique for Mercury.
I have a four year degree from the college of environmental science and forestry in Syracuse, NY with a Minor in environmental Urban Ecology.
I did a study on the roles of Universities in communities and how to improve upon their relationships called "The Bridge; Classroom to Community Connection".
I am an intern at Growing Power and I am incredibly willing and able to learn and help.
Which topics within Transition most interest you, and what are you most interested in getting out of your involvement in the Transition Movement?
I am generally interested in interconnecting all of the facets of a city into one coherent and synergistic system. For instance how does transportation effect the water, food, energy systems and community integration, amongst many others. If I had to pick however, I would have to say it's a tie between energy efficiency/independence and community development.
Organizations you belong to that might collaborate with Transition
SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry. (in Syracuse, so probably not unless you want to start a transition there).
