I envision a future where together as a society, we grow and work together to develop sustainable ways to limit our carbon footprint. By educating others about the effects of greenhouse gasses and the effect of over-consumption, I believe in the value of empowering others to meet the same goal. Things need to change and it needs to start now. Through small actions such as taking transit, biking to school, recycling, buying second-hand items and volunteering for events that inspire others to do the same, this would contribute to a brighter and positive future. We are all in this together, join our journey #unleashvalues

I like your mention of focusing on the positives and how we can move forward by empowering other! Education is definitely one of the first steps to change.
The change starts with each and every one of us! I'm excited to see what we can accomplish as a group together!
I quite agree with your opinion, but I think it is not easy for all or most people to do so, and many people may not be willing to do so, especially in such a fast-paced era as now, it is difficult for people to accept low-emission and low-efficiency transportation tools. Add to that the fact that people are busy with their lives, and it's hard for them to make a difference.
I love those little steps...I wish we can take a big step someday in the future, hope we could see that day coming soon.
To echo your sentiments, I too believe education is one of the most powerful weapons we can wield to institute change in the world. While unfortunate, as the condition of our globe worsens, more eyes and ears will be brought to the brutal and harsh realities of climate change. Taking steps as individuals is an amazing way to raise awareness and mobilize efforts towards building a sustainable future, but it will ultimately take a global effort to make a dent in repairing the severe damage we have caused our planet.
I believe that one of the main reasons why we will not reach the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) set by the United Nations is the lack of education we have as a society pertaining to the environmental crisis we have at hand. With the current global warming issues, that is all everyone wants to blame for the damage caused to the planet. Not littering, pollution, carbon emissions, fast fashion, or consumerism, but climate change. We need to educate others if we want to leave a positive future for the coming generations.
Hi Cindy I totally agree that educating others is important to develop a sustainable society! Only this way more and more people can understand the issue and truly start an environmental-friendly lifestyle!
I totally agree with everything you said. I love the vision of empowering others, and uplifting eachother along the journey.
I think that's a really great vision for the future! I love volunteering as well! <3
I like the emphasis you put on "we." To see real change we need everyone in society to be on board! Education, transparency, and cooperation :)
Education is super important in creating meaningful change!
I love this vision of the future! We could all work together to educate each other and lessen our negative impact on the planet.
I agree! We need to educate future generations and the current ones about the impacts of our day to day lives. Only through education can we truly make a difference and shift our way of living to be more sustainable.
Education is important! Everyone in ENVR 430 is a better citizen and person because of it <3
I agree that volunteering is a great way to get others on board with these initiatives!
Such a sweet and optimistic view! I didn't think of volunteering at first, but giving up your time to help a non-profit cause that you believe in is a great idea!
