Interview with Sonal Nandanwar, activist and Gracie Cavnar, founder and president of Recipe for Success.

JClimate change, global change. Sonal Nandanwar, a 17 year old student from England has a concern, a passion brewing. How can she affect a change on a global issue? How can she be a part of the solution?

Sonal took a holiday in Houston several weeks ago and decided she wanted to be an intern in a project surrounding climate change. The word went out through the CEC network and she came to us through Nan Hildreth, Nancy Edwards, and Bob Randall. Sonal had a palate of issues to choose from and opted for the changes in the gulf coast region and related that to the changes in the Maldives, islands in the Indian Ocean. She interviewed a number of people including Jim Blackburn to learn more about Our gulf coast region.

Sonal produced her report as a segment to air on Our program, Eco-Ology. Join us.
