Living Locally in a Global Age (Newsletter)

Happy Spring!

Please see my new article on Medium, Living Locally in a Global Age. In it, I explore the need for a more local orientation to living and ways to deepen our connections to the places where we live. 

I’ll be attending the San Mateo County Sustainability Awards this week and look forward to celebrating all the award winners including the Citizens Environmental Council (CEC) of Burlingame. Having spent six years (2002-08) as principal of Burlingame High School, it’s been wonderful to reconnect to Burlingame through serving as an advisor on the CEC’s high school intern program. The CEC has a number of great public programs ahead in 2019- check them out here
