Wow! I'm really excited to learn about this forum and join the community. I am passionate about climate change, waste reduction, sustainability, supporting local etc. It is so refreshing to see a social media platform begin to develop around a specific goal and conversation focused on progress. Thank you to everyone who contributed and everyone who joins in! My background is international standardization. I currently work with the Standards Council of Canada to develop/contribute to new and changing standards nationally and globally. Specifically, I specialize in the management processes of testing laboratories. My educational background is metallurgy but my lab contributions have evolved to be far more vast. I look forward to the discussion and community!
