Our Mission: Like most people, the commonground community is concerned about the Gulf oil spill. Our community is made up of over 6,000 environmental and real estate professionals with backgrounds in environmental science, biology, chemistry, engineering, geology, ecology, and many other relevant fields. The commonground community has experience and knowledge of the issues facing the Gulf region, and many of them are already in the area providing a wide range of services. For a two-week period beginning July 25th, commonground will be sending a correspondent to the region on our behalf. Jeff Cutler is a freelance seasoned journalist who specializes in social media content. Jeff will tour the Gulf Coast, looking at the issues through the lens of the commonground community. Together, we will explore how the environmental impacts of the oil spill affect things like real estate value, commercial property loans, insurance, environmental regulations, wetland and coastal ecology and waste management.
What should the average commonground member do? Ask questions. Questions you present in the community will be fielded by Jeff on the ground, and we hope to see answers come back in the form of photos, blogs, and video interviews. Answer questions. You are an expert in your domain. Lend your experience. Share. Your profile benefits from your participation. If more people in your company participate, your company could benefit, too.
