We've made it to the end. This has been a really great term and I quite enjoyed my experience with ENVR 430!
Although initially I wasn't sure what to expect from this course with the structure being so different than what I was used to. I loved learning a new topic every week and broadening my lens on the variety of issues surrounding sustainability (some of which I wasn't even aware of).
From this course, I hope to take what I've learned from practicing and engaging in hard conversations and continue to have these conversations with the people in my life. In these conversations I hope to practice patience, empathy and understand their personal values and connect them to the climate crises.
This has been an impactful experience and I'm feeling hopeful for the future!
I'm also hoping to take what I learned from my experience with hard conversations and communicate with others more effectively in the future!
Yes! I also like the structure and the topic of this course. They are new, they are active and they could actually engage people to make us think more about the ongoing issues instead of keeping showing indifference to the serious environmental problems!
Hi Hooria! I think this is a really good point. I think the hard conversations were such an interesting and great experience too! It's not something I would normally get in class and I think I will try to have more experiences like this.
