Personal Statement
Well it seems obvious to say, humans are closely tied to environmental issues. We are not only often the cause behind these issues. but increasingly the ones affected the loss of ecosystems and natural resources. My name is Blue (Jack) Donaton and I am working as a Masters student at ESF to better understand the interaction between people's value systems and their decision towards environmental actions. After my studies here I hope to work for an advocacy group, such as Environment New York, making environmental action appealing to traditionally anti-environmental political and economic entities.
