Benjamin Ryan

Benjamin RyanFounder, CEO

Benjamin E. K. Ryan understood that his inherited lifestyle was unsustainable.  It was not until his first trip to Bangladesh did this reality actually give way to a desire to change not only the unsustainable lifestyles of the world, but improve the negative ecological, economic and societal impacts of climate change-induced forced-migration.  Currently, he is enrolled at the University of Vermont, double majoring in International and Community Development Studies and Religion.  In late 2009, Ben came to realize that the most effective way to improve the world’s future sustainability was through education, action and awareness.  This recognition led to the concept behind the Foundation for Climate Change Refugees, a non-governmental organization dedicated to diminishing the potential for climate change-induced international migration and displacement.  Ben will be joining Auvee in Fall 2013 to start up the first project of the Foundation for Climate Change, a primary school for impoverished urban youth.
