So I'm in this program - Sustainability Global Leadership Alliance (SGLA). It’s an Albuquerque based non-profit org. That takes young Adults ages 18 - 22 and educates them in the field of Global Sustainability, Ultimately Transforming them into more Environmentally Conscious Individuals and Leaders to Those around Us. 9 Weeks of courses in everything from anti-consumerism to practicing non-violent communication and leadership skills. Intense Right? Also, almost a month will be spent Abroad in India working on a number of Sustainable Farms and Living Communities. India, a Radically different Society than our own, also gives us a better Global Perspective on Sustainability Issues.

So that's what I’ve been doing these past few months, fundraising for my program that will be starting early June.

This blog is to document and share my experiences in this program, stay tuned.

A Need to be Green

So we have an issue... a big one. The plain truth is that at the rate the human race is consuming and wasting our unrenewable resources, the world will be an entirely different place in the next 50 to 100 years. This means drastic climate change, extinction of species around the globe (humans are a species, btw), and a change in the way we live in general. I'm not just talking about rising coastal waters. Everyone knows GW its happening, yet some prefer to simply ignore the issues... "Someone else will take care of it..." But if everyone continues living the way they are, how can our situation change? I believe that, if we as a people stand together and face the issues, there is hope.

Its not that I just want to help fix these problems, I realize that We Have to Fix these Problems.
