    I started elementary school when I was five years old. I walked to school which was a little over 1 kilometer. I enjoy walking. I have participated in Jane's walks for the last five years and the walk 30 challenge for the last 3 years. My average walk time last year was just under 3 hours and lhe most walking in one day was 30 Km.

    "Why did you join the challenge and choose the actions you did?"
    My son is 17 years old, and is convinced that our society will collapse within 20 years, due to global warming and the social challenges that will arise. I still have hope that we can alter our path, but it will take effort from all of us.
    I chose reading about geothermal energy as my first task, because my Dad once told me that Colorado has a lot of untapped geothermal energy, and I wanted to find out what was happening in my state to work on that. It's local, and research seems right up my alley (much more so than emailing or advocating).
  • REFLECTION QUESTION
    Electricity Learn More About Geothermal Energy
    Geothermal energy is reliable, abundant, and efficient. Project Drawdown states that public investment will play a crucial role in its expansion. In what ways (i.e. with money, time, advocacy) can you invest in geothermal energy?

    I read it used to be thought that Colorado didn't have the heat energy needed to create power. That has changed. I'm wondering why I don't hear more about that, and what I can do so that my state can do better.

    I support social impact leaders by re-connecting them to their innate sources of vitality and wisdom. I often compare my approach to regenerative agriculture... it's inner regenerative ag. In fact, I wrote about this on LI in an article called, Tending The Soil. Joining this ecochallenge gives me a framework to focus my commitment to regenerative agriculture, both inner and outer. My first action has been to enroll in the Soil Advocate Training course by Kiss The Ground.
