Clifford Champion

 
Clifford ChampionA self-proclaimed “pragmatic idealist,” Cliff is constantly on the prowl for news about ideas that are shifting our global culture in a more positive direction. He recently graduated from Pepperdine University with a double major in French and intercultural communications, and is trying to adjust to life outside of the proverbial nest.

Next year, he will attend the Associated Colleges in China program in Beijing to perfect his Mandarin, and to better acquaint himself with the growing Chinese environmental movement. He also hopes to one day unify his jumbled array of interests with a graduate degree in the field of sustainable design. Until then, he will be spending his summer months in Connecticut and NYC before setting off for the Far East.
