     CSL 8: My sustainable city of the future has a diverse and equitable economy that promotes harmony with the ecosystem it exists in. It has reliable and affordable public transportation that is powered using clean renewable energy. It is made up of diverse and just communities that foster a good quality of life for all members at the individual, group and community level. Additionally, it respects the natural law and lives within it as opposed to trying to control it.

     CSL 7: This week, I noticed how much I contribute to the consumer culture of this society. Everything from buying a cup of coffee in the morning to pumping gas on the way home contributes to the economics of consumption and their intrinsic connection.

     CSL 6: As a commuter, I drive a lot. When I am getting around my area, I make an effort to walk or bike whenever possible. However, I find driving the only viable way to get to campus. I have debated carpooling as a way to get to school and reduce my impact but with an inconsistent schedule, I’m unsure how to make that work. I would also like to utilize public transport more often.

     CSL 5: I could be more involved in nurturing a more sustainable and just community in my area by getting more involved in community programs. I live in Del Ray, Alexandria which is a very community-based town and regular has community events, many of which include sustainability as a factor. Through involvement in the community garden, my passion for agriculture could help support my community.

    CSL 4: I live in the Mid Atlantic watershed which is commonly affected by pollution from runoff as well as flooding because of the prevalence of impervious surfaces. The geographical boundaries include the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The Mid Atlantic watershed is quite large, encompassing multiple states. Municipal water in the area does come from the watershed which itself drains into the ocean.

    CSL 3: Taking a look at my eating habits for a week I was surprised by the amount I waste in terms of food scraps. Be cognizant of this motivates me to start a compost bin again.

    CSL 2: Reduce my use of single-use plastics and minimize my waste production, find a way to use more renewable energy and drive less, and buy more local and sustainable foods.

    CSL 1 Reflection: I want to learn about more sustainable actions I can incorporate on my life. I would love to reduce the amount I drive. I can contribute knowledge about farming.
