My name is Philip! I am a fifth-year student, majoring in Environmental Sciences and minoring in Political Science. As with many others here, I am taking ENVR 430 this term and am I excited to join CoSphere!
Through this course, I hope to learn about the role of individuals, organizations, and governments in finding sustainable climate change solutions. How can we ensure governments hit scientifically-informed climate targets? Do we have unsustainable habits because they are easier, or just because they appear easier? Is "voluntary simplicity" an effective intervention in urban areas? Is social media an effective medium for motivating real change? These are just some of the questions I have so far.
I'm eagerly looking forward to connecting and conversing with all of you! I find significant value in honest discussions with people who see the world differently than I do. This is how we learn the most. This is how we find solutions. This is how we find happiness. Through connection, not consumption.
