TEDxBeaconStreet 2015 Adventure Catalysts are TEDx Organizers from many US states and countries. We came to Boston to participate in a Workshop that included visits to Google, MIT Media Lab and other innovative companies in Boston. During the weekend Adventure Catalysts volunteered in TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet and TEDxBeaconStreet. The objective is to create TEDx Adventures to bring them to our cities. We combined our Learning Adventures with TEDxFSCJ to create TED Ed Learning Adventures.
During TEDxBeaconStreet we joined efforts to support #EarthToParis initiative. #EarthToParis wants to impulse awareness about the Climate Change Summit #COP21Paris from November 30th to December 11th. At the same time we remembered #BostonStrong messages to support #ParisStrong and #BostonToParis. Our posters on stage show our commitment to act in our communities to support #Peace, #Love, and our #Environment. #IdeasInAction.

Undercover Professor Dr. Jose G. Lepervanche interviews Jason Milton, Senior Environmental Scientist @ Environmental Resource Solutions. Mr. Milton talks about skills needed in environmental projects. They include field work, writing skills, graphical skills for maps and presentations, client relations, and agency relations. They help private companies to comply with environmental regulations to limit the impact to natural resources. He shares how he learned on the job to improve his project and management skills and provide recommendations to future managers.
Mr. Milton performs a diverse array of environmental evaluation and permitting tasks for ERS. Direct client consultation and agency coordination, wetland delineation with respect to state and federal jurisdictional methodologies, wetland impact assessments, mitigation design/implementation, environmental resource permitting, graphic design and site-specific threatened/endangered species evaluation and permitting are routinely conducted by Mr. Milton. He is a specialist in the field of mitigation bank permitting, and has successfully worked to secure permits/authorizations from the St. Johns River Water Management District, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the interagency Mitigation Bank Review Team for several mitigation banks in north and central Florida. He also acts as a project manager, performing and/or supervising large scale project efforts to effectively execute the entire scope of work involved.
