As Sustainability Fellow for 2018, I am confidently developing a sustainability universe for students by including pedagogical and (co)curricular approaches to sustainability as a central feature. After months of planning, here we are !
On October 24th, I hosted a forum on food sustainability with the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The crowd was lively and highly informed; the student body represented a variety of programs and departments, but mostly our FY students.
Overall it was very informative and full of lively discussions. There are many dynamics to understanding food sustainability. Expanding the knowledge universe to include current issues impacting our future is a great way to begin.
Jasmine Payne was an excellent speaker. She offered us charts, graphs and other data to illuminate the current state of affairs regarding an essential human need. But this was beyond food, it was also about our future and what steps we can take to own it. This event was another essential piece of the sustainability journey. Special thanks to all in attendance, The Office of Diversity and Inclusion, KSU Sustainability Fellows and everyone doing this important work. Check out some of the photo highlights below.
