Tim Shannon is a rising junior at Haverford High School in the suburbs of Philadelphia PA. He has grown up with lots of outdoor interaction (Scouting and other camping) and has thus grown to love the earth. A recent mission trip to Haiti has shown him that the silence of the past must cease, on many issues, including climate change.Tim is a lead singer in a local band, and has also been involved in theater production. He sees these activities as fun, but also as a way to extend himself into new ventures.
Tim is grateful for the opportunity the symposium provides for exposure to seasoned activists to help him figure out how to take a stand on the issue of climate change, and as a starting place for life as an activist
Tim enjoys spending time in Vermont with his extended family.
