I really enjoyed this class and like the format of the lectures and how they were based around stories and the fact that there was no midterm or final making it less stressful and allowing for true engagement with material without worry of exams. I think that allowed for a deeper appreciation and respect for the problems surrounding climate change as opposed to meaninglessly regurgitating everything in pre readings and lecture. I also really enjoyed the documentaries and pre class material as opposed to having a textbook. I enjoyed the final project too and even had a student reach out to me on my personal tik tok saying how they enjoyed the presentation. I intend to take Environmental science 430 experiences moving forward by understanding sustainability, thinking critically about what brands say about their products and being mindful of my own consumption.
Vision: Individual and institutional actions to be more sustainable
Values: I value sustainability, recycling, and reusing as well as only purchasing things that are needed.
Action: I will educate my peers and family about the environmental crisis and what they can do to help live more sustainable lives.
