Sustainability is about making choices

December 13, 2012 Posted by: K Robbins

At the park, students engaged in conversations about choice, resources, decision making, and limits. They eagerly explored different systems that the park has installed with an eye toward becoming more self-reliant and reducing fossil fuel use. At each stop, students took photographs that helped them define what made the system sustainable, or not. Finally, some reflected on decisions that they make in their own lives and what factors influence these choices.
