I am currently writing a thesis for the University of West Georgia that compares the evolutions of environmental movements in Spain, the Netherlands, and Sweden while analyzing the optimal conditions that produce actual environmental policy change. I Graduate with my Master's degree on December 8th and will be moving to Spain in early January before persuing my Ph.D. in environmental sociology. For the required dissertation I will need to acquire interviews abroad regarding social movement strategies and how they affect policy change.
I am a struggling graduate student and am having trouble balancing school and my cooking job as it is now. Raising money for a plane ticket would be beyond my capabilities.
Degradation of the environmental condition is the greatest threat currently facing humanity. Finding ways to facilitate easier passage of laws and regulations that protect the environment is imperative! The dissertation that I write based upon this research will lead to a greater understanding of how to do so. Funding my project will be doing all of humanity and the environment a necessary service.
