  • Reflection Question
    Food Choose Organic Ingredients
    Many people say that “you can’t feed the world with just organic food.” How would you respond to that statement?

    Emna Nafti's avatar
    Emna Nafti 10/20/2020 12:31 PM
    The truth is that yes, organic can feed the world! Organic can compete with conventional yields and outperform conventional in adverse weather. Small farmers using organic methods have huge potential to expand global food production.
  • Reflection Question
    Food Zero-Waste Cooking
    In North America, up to 65% of food waste happens at the consumer level. Chef Steven Satterfield advocates for using every part of a vegetable. How can you incorporate using an entire vegetable (including the skins, tops, stalks, etc.) during your next meal prep?

    1. Make a breakfast salad. 
    2. Go beyond the green smoothie. 
    3. Do a loaded sweet potato.
    4. Think scrambled veggies
    5. Have a side of vegetables instead of fruit. ...
    6. Crack an egg in it. ...
    7. Supercharge your avocado toast. ...
    8. Make a better breakfast burrito.

  • Reflection Question
    Health Learn About Local Environmental Justice Concerns
    Who is most affected by environmental degradation and/or environmental irresponsiblity in your community? How are they affected?

    Emna Nafti's avatar
    Emna Nafti 10/20/2020 12:28 PM
    Environmental degradation increases the vulnerability of the societies it affects and contributes to the scarcity of resources. Climate change will lead to an increase in the intensity and frequency of weather extremes, such as heat waves, floods, droughts and tropical cyclones
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Justice for the Whole Community Learn About Trans, Femme, and Nonbinary Experiences
    How is equality for trans, femme, and nonbinary people important to a just and sustainable society?

    Emna Nafti's avatar
    Emna Nafti 10/20/2020 12:24 PM
     There are reasons why greater equality may be necessary for achieving a sustainable way of life. Inequality makes people more materialistic, and people with strong materialistic values report few ecologically friendly behaviours and more negative attitudes toward the environment.
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Justice for the Whole Community Watch a Documentary about Racial Injustice
    What did you learn about racial injustice in the documentary(ies) you watched? How does what you learned connect to your understanding of sustainability?

    Emna Nafti's avatar
    Emna Nafti 10/20/2020 12:15 PM
    Much of that stems from a single, crucially important fact: people of color are generally most affected by climate change and other effects of a destabilized environment.
  • Reflection Question
