I am a newly arrived Canadian to Australia. As I am currently waiting for my permanent visa to be processed, I am eager to become familiar and involved with what is happening in the world of Social Innovation in Sydney. I have an ecotourism, tourism research, environmental education, programme development and teaching background. Additionally, I have lived, studied and worked in several coutries over the past five years. I want to take my experience, knowledge and passion and turn them into positive changes. The area of social innovation is a faschinating area that brings together all elements I am interested in and passionate about.
