Join us in congratulating our leader John Mundell who was named today as a Hoosier Resilience Hero by Indiana University’s Environmental Resilience Institute!
John was recognized for his steadfast professional career in protecting the environment and his work with faith based sustainability programs both locally with the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Creation Care Ministry and internationally through a Vatican commission developing an online course on green entrepreneurship.
Hoosier Resilience Heroes are individuals and groups committed to ensuring a safe, healthy environment for their families, their neighbors and future generations. 13 Hoosier leaders – students, professionals, and volunteers – were recognized for their dedication to sustainable agriculture, clean energy development, environmental justice, and other aspects of environmental protection and resilience.
Environmental Resilience Director Janet McCabe, also President Joe Biden’s nominee for deputy administrator of the EPA, congratulated the recipients. “From farms, to suburbs, to urban neighborhoods, everywhere you look you find people working to make Indiana a healthier, more environmentally sustainable place to live,” said McCabe. “Our heroes are leading the charge against ongoing threats to our state, such as climate change and long-term social and environmental inequities. We applaud their efforts and are inspired by their contributions to our state.”
