This Term's Writer

My name is Cam Somerville and I have the pleasure of being a resident writer for Green Medium until December 7th, 2015. I'd like to take a moment to explain my role as it may aid in understanding my perspective. I currently am in high school in Edmonton, Alberta and am honoured to serve Edmonton youth aged 13 to 23 on the City of Edmonton Youth Council ( Last year I served on the sustainability sub-committee where I was chosen to lead a local initiative to encourage composting among young people in Edmonton. In addition I brought forward a policy recommendation to city council asking them to either only purchase from caterers who reduce food waste or purchase solely plant-based catering. Environmental sustainability is something important to me and I look forward to being able to contribute to the discussion on The Green Medium
