A podcast interview with Mary Jo Aagerstoun, Ph.D., president, EcoArt South Florida, Inc. is available in the Podcast Section of Hispanic Marketing & Public Relations, HispanicMPR.com. During the podcast, she discusses combining art, science and community with Elena del Valle, host of the HispanicMPR.com podcast.
An “accidental environmentalist” Mary Jo seeks to make a difference for South Florida’s environment through art that engages community. To this end, in 2007, she founded EcoArt South Florida, a nonprofit that brings together art, science and community engagement. Mary Jo’s increasing interest and self education in environmental issues led her also to several volunteer advisory experiences, including most recently as a consortium member of 7/50, a 50 year planning effort engaging seven counties in South East Florida, and funded by the United States Department of Housing and Community Development, and with her own city, West Palm Beach.
She is a member of the relatively new City of West Palm Beach Sustainability Advisory Committee where she serves as the chair of the subcommittee on natural resources and water conservation, and is a past member of the city’s Art in Public Places Board and the Comprehensive Plan update committee.
