I am really motivated have to be a part of this workshop. My field of expertise are ethical finance, carbon finance, corporate social responsibility, green marketing and forest certification. While I am mostly knowledgable about these fields, I also learnt about other aspects of sustainable lifestyles through non formal education (seminars, workshops, student projects). I also have a personal green blog dedicated to different environmental sustainability lifestyle issues and news. You can see my blog here:
