My name is Mary Katherine Belknap. I am an active Earth Charter Young Leader taking part in this program from the United States. In addition to this, I am in a national service volunteer program working for an affordable housing nonprofit.
I have a strong passion for environmental sustainability and joined this program as a means of expanding my knowledge and interest in this topic. Through the work I do for the Earth Charter, I hope to continue learning about such topics mentioned above on a global scale and continue seeking ways in which to incorporate this information into my life and the lives of others around me. Having recently graduated from university, I am hoping to stay connected with this program and this network as I continue integrating my interests through my post-graduate path.
My hopes for a more ethical and environmentally sustainable future inspire me to do good for the world and I have hope that the Earth Charter Young Leaders program will give me the tools to better apply this throughout my future.
