Orientation Week and My Thoughts on Sustainability

I have just published a small post in the blog of the Institute of The Environment at the University of Ottawa, where I am currently a student for a M.Sc degree in Environmental Sustainability. It was written upon a request and it is about our first week of the M.Sc program, my reflections on it, and my thoughts on the meaning of sustainability.

First week in the Land of The Maple Leaf: meeting Derek Olive at a Blue Dot Movement event

Right off the bat, I want to say I’m sorry to all my readers for being relatively quiet this month. I have an excuse, however: I am now officially back to school, this time pursuing Master of Science in Environmental Sustainability at the University of Ottawa, Canada.

The main talk in Canada now, of course, is the federal election, which will be held on October 19, 2015 to elect members to the House of Commons of the 42nd Parliament of Canada.
