Sustainability is a complex and contested concept, but at its essence represents the hope for a healthy, just and bright future for us all. We offer Choices for Sustainable Living as an opportunity to move beyond the hype to explore sustainability more deeply. The course focuses less on defining sustainability than envisioning sustainability – what would a sustainable world look like? And how can we create it together?

Each category below is mapped to each session in your book, and contains actions for putting your knowledge into practice.

    Possible solution to overconsumption per capita: One solution for overconsumption around the world is encouraging people to utilize services that allow you to rent clothes/accessories/etc so that you are recycling clothing items. This decreases consumption in the world when people are reusing/recycling items.

    Possible solution to overpopulation: I would think that a solution for overcrowding populations in the world, would be having the governments around the world implement federal/state incentives for families who have two children or less.

    I spoke with 10 students in my building today about the importance of sustainability and its practices. Each one of them has been using their recycle containers, which I delivered to them, to recycle each day. 20200221_145713.jpg 4.49 MB
