Wow, where do I even start? This course expanded my perspective on climate change and dive into topics I have never thought about before. This has been an incredible experience where I get to have non-judgemental conversations with like-minded individuals. A goal I had coming into ENVR 430 was to learn about the interventions on different topics (plastic waste, overconsumption etc). I now have the necessary knowledge and will always do my own research in order to prevent purchasing from greenwashing companies.
That being said, I envision a world where education on sustainability and climate change becomes the main focus in today’s society. I want everyone to experience the same learning opportunity that my classmates and I experienced through ENVR 430. Because that’s the solution, it’s that simple. By targeting each climate crisis through education, I truly believe that the goal of a sustainable future can be accomplished. My interventions and what I intend to take from ENVR 430 would be setting aside time to engage in hard conversations with others while raising awareness on these topics. With this, I hope to inspire others through learning and practicing sustainable measures every day.
