Hi! My name is Brianna Parent Long, and I am a leader of Team Honey Badger!
I am the Gender and Diversity Program Officer at VIDEA and I am currently studying my PhD in Political Science at Carleton University. The Global Solidarity Challenge is extremely important to me and what it symbolizes for VIDEA as an organization. VIDEA is a leader in International Development and has worked diligently to decolonize the sector’s approach to development. These funds allow us to continue the amazing work we do.
This year, especially, I have been feeling the weight of climate change, or climate anxiety. For my challenge, I want to focus on making solidified and conscious decisions that will be integrated into my life after the challenge to reduce my carbom footprint. This year for the challenge I will:
- reduce my showers to 3 minutes
- source meat and vegetables from local farms in Bathurst (my hometown) and Ottawa (where I go to school)
- Only buy food I will eat to reduce my waste
Thank you for your donation!! It means the world!
