I believe in a future where humanity co-exists with the environment. This would include the simultaneous respect of cultural as well as environmental values as a collective society to achieve a sort of equilibrium between humanity and nature (although humanity and nature should be seen as two parts of a collective whole rather than the "us vs. them" narrative we have today). The incentive to move towards co-existence would have to include some sort of economic element, finding ways to profit off of conservation, and an environment-first approach. Off the top of my head, this might be some sort of environment credit system or something of that nature. Finally, the law and systems of power would have to recognize the importance of cultural/traditional/local knowledge when it comes to designing environmental policy and protections and such. #UnleashValues

In this current era of rapid technological advancement, it has become advantageous to a company's bottom line to ensure that users cannot repair their devices. This occurs in pretty much every technological sector whether that is phones, cars, etc. through warranty voiding, making the device unnecessarily complicated, or making it extremely expensive to repair as special equipment is usually needed. Through a cultural shift towards not wanting the latest tech as well as political action to make the right to repair cemented in law, I can envision a society where technology is developed to last longer, both physically and computationally, and be easy or inexpensive to repair. #UnleashValues

Hey! I’m Tyson, a 4th-year Environmental Science student and I’m excited to be part of this very unique class, never would I have thought that posting on social media would be a core component of a course. I’ve found that I’m rather passionate about biodiversity, climate change, and how science and government need to rethink how sustainability and ecosystem conservation is approached. In a world where it is easy to be pessimistic about environmental problems due to large corporations and governments prioritizing short-term economic gain over long-term solutions, I’m excited to see where this class goes. I’m eager to be a part of the beginning of this environmental movement as we try to make a real difference to this bizarre new world we are in. Hopefully this gets off the ground and we can get everyone to #UnleashValues
