I hope we see a world where more people are aware of or educated on the topic of ecology and (in)justice to see how they affect different communities in the world. If more people understand the three dimensions of (in)justice and are aware of how decisions can affect more people, the views of more people can be incorporated into decisions. Being able to have more people participate in meaningful discussions forms important connections. These connections and discussions can create a positive feedback loop that allows for even more learning and awareness.

I believe that transparency from companies is essential in helping consumers understand how their values line up with manufacturers. If someone sees a world problem they are passionate about, then transparency will help them be more knowledgeable about their decisions on which companies to support. Demanding transparency can help highlight ethical and environmental issues in a company's manufacturing chain. In class, we talked about Patagonia announcing how they would be transparent about their down-live-plucking, which stirred lots of controversies. However, I support companies trying to attempt this as it reveals malpractices that even the companies themselves were not aware of. #UnleashValues @cosphereproject

I'm Suragan and am currently enrolled in ENVR 430 at UBC! I registered for the course without any idea of what we would be doing and learning. This class is run in a very unique way, and with an open mind, I am very excited to see where it takes me. By learning about sustainability I hope our small class can strive to make some real positive changes in our community! #UnleashValues
