Until recently I was what you might call ‘casually green’. Sure, I recycled, and I felt concerned about overfishing, global climate change and the melting of the ice caps, but basically I had just a casual interest in environmental matters.
I have been studying part-time, and decided to do a paper in environmental studies, basically because it was the only paper I could do over the summer holidays. Oh, and I thought it might be interesting. What an eye-opener it has been!
I have now decided that the major for my degree will be in Environment, and I have started making some changes in my life. You can see more about that under ‘What I am doing’.
