Green Cities Sustainability Corps 2012
Originally from New Jersey, John is a graduate of Syracuse University with degrees in Geography, Policy Studies, and Spanish and recently completed a year with the Green Cities program as the Climate Fellow for Green Building Alliance. While there, he spent time launching online media initiatives, spearheading Pittsburgh’s celebration of sustainable transportation, Transportation Exploration, completing and seeking City Council adoption of Pittsburgh Climate Action Plan, Version 2.0, and facilitating and performing research for partnerships with local colleges, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations. As a continuation of that work, he is excited to be working exclusively with the Higher Education Climate Consortium on getting quantifiable reductions in campus emissions and increasing overall campus sustainability. When not in the office, John can be found biking between the school campuses, playing sports and generally being outside, trying a new recipe, or seeking out new roller coasters to ride.
