  • Reflection Question
    Food Watch a Documentary about Food Sovereignty
    How does food sovereignty address the complex transition from localized food systems to modern global food systems?

    brianna fehrer 11/14/2019 1:43 PM
    food sovereignty is having access to healthy cultural food grown in the way the people want. the way we cultivate land is very complex and food systems now are very modernized.

  • Reflection Question
    Nature Leave No Trace
    Educator Stephanie Kaza advises her students to focus on what they care about most when addressing the enormity of ecological problems. Is there a specific area you feel particularly called to work on?

    brianna fehrer 11/05/2019 1:35 PM
    I care about all ecological problems but I think I'm called to work on ecological problems in the ocean more. why I am majoring in marine biology.

  • Reflection Question
    Community Support Native Communities
    Indigenous speaker and activist Winona LaDuke says that, "most indigenous ceremonies, if you look to their essence, are about the restoration of balance — they are a reaffirmation of our relationship to creation. That is our intent: to restore, and then to retain balance and honor our part in creation." Why is balance important to sustainability?

    brianna fehrer 11/05/2019 1:28 PM
    balance is important to sustainability because living sustainably is living in balance, you need to know how to keep your checks and balances to keep everything moving and on track.

    because we can't see exactly what directly effects the animals people and places. now I know more about the effects and can choose my actions more wisely

    Waste Go Paperless
    Reducing your paper mail can reduce mental clutter as well as physical waste -- by reducing what is coming in, you can reduce what is going into the recycling bin too. How does it make you feel? What is the next step you will take to reduce your waste?

    brianna fehrer 11/05/2019 12:35 PM
    it makes me feel good and its easier cause then everything just comes through my email. the next steps could be taking notes on your computer instead of a paper journal
