James Harvard

James Harvard lives in Hanover, New Hampshire and graduated from high school in 2012. He has a long-standing interest in the people and culture of the Himalaya and will be making his first trip there as part of a gap year in the fall of 2012. James is interested in history and public policy and looks forward to seeing firsthand how the mountain communities of Nepal are responding to the demands of modernization and challenges to their natural environment. He hopes to gain a better understanding of the relationship between mountain communities and nearby glaciers to see what the practical impact of receding glaciers and climate change is on the people who live there.
