Tim continues to participate actively in our annual Fellows Network gatherings. After one of them, he reflected: “Most people are taking great risks – of one form or another – to do sustainability work and I appreciated the mutual support that was so evident at the workshop… I took away a renewed commitment to my work and to my participation in the community of practitioners that the Fellows Network provides.”
