Coming into ENVR430 and after the first class, I didn’t know what to expect. This was the first time I had ever taken a class like this and so there was a mix of nervousness but also excitement. Throughout the term, I engaged with the lecture content with an open mind so that I could absorb as much of the content as I could. I listened to all the in-class discussions (which were very daunting at first because I felt that so many people were more passionate and knowledgeable about what we were learning than I was). However, these discussions ultimately inspired me to want to keep up with global/local issues when it comes to sustainability.
So I envision a future where more people are well-informed about what is happening in society and the environment. And this could be possible because people like us, who took this class and led campaigns/workshops, are able to teach people who are willing to learn. We all share the same planet, so we can all learn from one another to reach this envisioned future.
