Aaron Lehr
Senior @University of Vermont
Mr. Lehr is a senior environmental studies student at the University of Vermont with a personal interest in sustainability. During his sophomore year he was a sustainability intern with Maine non-profit, Manomet, where he worked with small businesses to better understand sustainability and how it relates businesses and organizations at that scale. Last spring, he studied in Costa Rica with a focus on sustainability and climate change mitigation. Despite finishing schooling in May 2021, Mr. Lehr and his peers continue to grow fearful as well as optimistic as the generation(s) that are going to deal with the brunt of the climate impacts that began centuries ago. After graduation, Mr. Lehr plans on working at a psychiatric hospital in New York where he wants to explore the intersection of environmental studies and psychiatric care/hospital upkeep.
