#UnleashValues Before class, I read through Justice, Equity, and Biodiversity, the chapter that talks about the inclusion of future people attracts me. I always believe that it is injustice for existing people to enjoy the benefits of extracting resources without considering for future people, and the term “procedural justice” is a great representation of my value. When making decision, we should not only think about the benefits for us, it is also important to appreciate others’ perspective and the consequences of each decision to them. I envision that in the future people can recognize the outcomes of their actions and be considerate when taking actions. @cosphereproject

#UnleashValues Hello everyone, I’m Shirley. I’m a third-year student double majoring in Environmental Science and Economics. I’m excited to get enrolled in ENVR 430 just this week. My concentration is Ecology and Conservation, and most of the classes I’ve taken are about climate and ecology. I want to pursuit research in oceanography and ecology in the future, so I'm trying to get in to a lab. I Iove the topics that will be discussed in this class, and I’m excited to learn more about sustainability. @cosphereproject

#UnleashValues Today’s class fascinates me as we talk about some topics that were never discussed in other Environmental science classes I’ve taken. I just realized that besides climate change there are more things we could do to mitigate environmental problems. I believe that we are living in an era of consumerism, and it is important for us as students interested in environmental problems to first realize the importance of achieving non-materialistic lifestyle. I envision that as more people recognize the importance of reducing excessive consumption and returning to non-materialistic lifestyle, the marketing strategy of large companies will also be changed. However, companies will always aim for maximizing their own profits, so a lot of efforts need to be put in for their transformation. @cosphereproject
