There is so much that I have learned such as learning to be more conscious about the resources I use from back in the United States. Taking water, electricity or any other necessity for granted. I would definitely recommend this for anyone who’s looking to dabble into sustainabilit. Casey Rueda, Skidmore. Spring 2023
I would recommend it. You learn a lot of graphic design and learn to work as a team to brainstorm solutions. You learn to plan activities and create guides to teach people and encourage sustainability. Marco Pretell, Tufts. Spring 2023
