After the first ENVR 430 lecture we had, I was a little nervous about how the rest of the term would go because the course seemed so different from the typical science courses I was used to but at the same time, there was some excitement in me to experience something different. Now that the class is coming to an end, I am glad I got the chance to take it. I really enjoyed the fact that this class allowed us to share our knowledge and visions beyond the walls of the classroom through things such as CoSphere and the final project. This course taught me how to think about a variety of ecological problems in much more complex ways than I would before. It also taught me how to tie in my visions/values to these problems in order to come up with solutions that can achieve the sustainable world I envision for the future. In the future, I plan to continue to think about ecological problems in a different way, and I also want to continue to spread awareness about these topics to the people around me.
Thank you, Kai and Dana!
