Some of the institutes I have visited include: Kalmar University (1999), the Smith School of Enterprise and Environment at Oxford (2008), and the School of International Relations and Public Affairs, Fudan University, Shanghai China (2009). I was selected by an international selection committee, chaired by Queen Noor of Jordan, to attend the first leadership workshop by United Nations University in Jordan in 1997.
I am Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of Green Venture (a community based non-profit organization that is committed to helping residents live more sustainably at home, at work, and in their daily lives) since 2009 and have been a director since 2005. I am also on the Board of LEAD, Canada and volunteer time with Sustainable Hamilton on reporting initiative.
Currently, I teach at McMaster University, supervise graduate students at York University and also do consulting work (mainly on climate change and water issues and regeneration curriculum design). I have also taught at Kobe College, Japan.
