Welcome to our new website! ASI has been a long time in the making and the brainchild of Dr. Andrea Simonelli, Dr. Jacqueline Meijer-Irons and Heather Croshaw. We are excited to be able to have a web presence and are ready to begin working on the greatest challenge of our generation- climate change. The heating of our planet due to increased greenhouse gas emissions has already has irreversible effects on our world. 2016 continues to break records, which means there will be more and more long term changes to our sea levels, heat indexes, storm strengths which will inexorably effect our global capacity for food production, places of habitual residences, health, and welfare (among other things). At ASI, we are willing and able to take on these challenges and create progress toward a future in which humanity can and does ready itself for a new way of living. This is not going to be easy, but we understand the complexities ahead and are eager to assist with this transition. With experience in all levels of complex social, legal, and political complexities, ASI is ready to make a difference. Each member of our founding team has been on the ground in some of the most vulnerable geographic areas of current climate distress and will bring that experience to every new project that we take.
We hope you will take some time to get to know us, our work, and our passion for making the world ready for tomorrow.
-Dr. Andrea C. Simonelli
