Tokyo Food Crisis

In 2020 I'll be living in Vancouver with my wife and two children. We will live in a neighbourhood with a strong community, one that has formed through improved densificiation around one of the developing transit nodes.

Want to help the world? Facilitate positive change like Sidney Ribaux

I found Sidney Ribaux through Ashoka. He is an activist who has built a company around the idea of empowering individuals to make personal change and support societal change towards more societally and environmentally friendly behaviour in numerous aspects of our daily lives such as consumption and transportation.

I'm following him on Facebook now and sent a message to him complementing his area of work and enquiring about similar projects in other parts of Canada.

Do you like people?

Listen to the right people/keep learning

I work in transportation, and transportation is just about getting from A to B, right? Well, no, but it is often the way that it's analyzed. I recently did some focus groups with people in England and Scotland from the ages of 21 to 76.

In all group discussions, people talked about either enjoying walking to stores and chatting with neighbours, or wanting to be able to do that. People in general like to see, meet, and chat with…

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

India Water home
