Nicholas Garcia-Guerrero: Spring 2011 Student Commencement Speaker

0232.jpg

Nicholas will receive his Bachelor’s of Science in 2 majors: Environmental Economics and Policy from the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Environmental Sciences. He has proven himself as an excellent student with a record that defies his rigorous course load, graduating with a GPA of 3.6. But CNR is about more than just outstanding scholarship, it is also about engagement with society and the world that surrounds us. In addition to his academic pursuits, Nicholas has found a multitude of ways to engage with our campus, with local community groups, as well as with our students.

As a Chancellor’s Public fellow, he helped shape our curriculum with his work on the community engagement component of our course titled “Introduction to Culture and Natural Resource Management”. As a member of the campus leadership team and as a campus ambassador for almost 3 years, he has served as a spokesperson for CNR and the campus to the general public as well as assisting in creating a Speakers Bureau for our campus. He has also served as a member of the College of Natural Resource’s Board. Beyond community engagement, his research experiences working in faculty laboratories and offices spanned economic analyses with Professor Boettiger’s research group on microcredit loans and technology access by the poor to his other interests in biology in the laboratory of Professor Claire Kremen, looking at land-use change decisions by small farmers in Madagascar.

Nicholas’s breadth of interests reflects the breadth of study found within CNR faculty and our students. Nicholas is an exemplary model of the quality and breadth of our engaged students here in CNR who, we are confident, will discover and implement the solutions for the issues facing our world.

Listen to Nick's Speech here as introduced by Amory Lovins:

Generation Waking Up

Wake Up. Stand Up. Build Up.

SAVE THE DATE
Thursday, November 18th
6:00 - 9:30pm
(Location coming soon!)

Hey folks!

You're invited to a special event called Generation Waking Up (The WakeUp for short). The WakeUp is a 3-hour multi-media, interactive, peer-led workshop that explores the ways in which we, as students, can confront our current social and environmental challenges.

Through live music, spoken word, media, interactive group exercises, and dialogue, the Wake Up takes participants through a transformative exploration of the critical questions facing students and society today:

1) Who Are We? Who are we as individuals and as a generation? What makes us unique and powerful?

2) Where Are We? What are the current issues threatening our modern world?

3) What Has to Change? What has to change in order to create a thriving, just, sustainable world?

4) What Do We Do Now? What projects and movements already exist? What is actually possible for the future? And what do we have to contribute to this Movement as individuals and as a generation?

The WakeUp is sponsored by a variety of UC Berkeley student groups, including Bridges, CalCorps, ASUC, and others. We're excited to see you there!

Please RSVP here: https://spreadsheets.google.com/viewform?formkey=dHJhYy1ONE54OVB3eWhZZFk2YjhNZUE6MQ

-Ryan Cole

Cal Corps Shinnyo-en Fellow

Sustainability Forum 2/3 6-7:30pm

A message from the Office of Sustainability:

Come to the Feb 2010 Sustainability Forum held on Wed, Feb 3, 2010 from 6:00pm-7:30pm in 2304 Tolman Hall to learn more about the various environmental student groups and their initiatives on campus! There are 30+ environmental groups offered at UCB with focuses ranging from green energy to sustainable agriculture to green business consulting. Figure out what each group is about and how you can get involved or just get updated on campus sustainability and network others at the forum! Short presentations will be made by each group while the rest of the time will be for mingling. This is also a great place to find internships and summer jobs, so don’t miss out! Open to everyone and snacks will be provided.

RSVP to the Facebook event and invite all your friends! For a full list of the organizations coming, keep visiting the Facebook event. We’d love to see and hear from you! The forum is hosted by the UC Berkeley Office of Sustainability and made possible by The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF). For more info on the forum, click here.
