Kynan Hicks (Internship)Kynan Hicks 2015 Intern

Kynan grew up in Golden, Colorado where he has always enjoyed exploring the outdoors with his friends and family. Over the past few summers, he has worked in the Colorado mountains as a professional outdoor guide and educator taking teens mountain biking, rock climbing, and backpacking. In 2014 Kynan graduated from Principia College in Elsah, IL and received a B.A. in global perspectives with minors in sustainability and Spanish language. While in college, he took full advantage of opportunities to explore ways that social and environmental stewardship were being applied on his college campus and in the world. During his junior year, Kynan joined an abroad program in Peru to learn about problems in the global seafood economy. While many aspects of the abroad focused on the issues of unsustainable fishing practices, he particularly enjoyed experiencing how some NGOs and businesses were using principles of sustainability to solve these problems. He also served as the Executive Director of Speakers for his college’s annual Public Affairs Conference on the topic of sustainability. He worked with a group of students to invite and host a variety of thought-leaders in the sustainability space. After college, he moved back to Colorado to work for a sustainability communications company called Taiga Company, and is eager to explore more about how sustainability can be applied to business and community practices.
