About Rachel Gibson
Rachel received her Master’s working with Dr. Jennifer Cross in CSU’s Department of Sociology. She will examine what has motivated Fort Collins residents to get involved in FortZED, a community initiative to reduce city-wide energy use through conservation practices and the use of renewable energy sources. She will also examine the success of strategies aimed at getting people to curb their energy use. Through a collaborative project involving Colorado State University, the CCC, The Atmosphere Conservancy, and other community members, she will be able to examine this very unique community initiative, which will help reduce energy use and provide for a better, more environmentally-friendly future.
