This seminar will explore how personal and professional choices impact people and the environment, as well as how making more sustainable choices in life and work can have a positive impact on our communities and our world. Students will explore how small changes in areas like food, fashion, travel, and entertainment can have a big impact. Students will also learn how introduce sustainability into their places of work whether that is at UW, a local cafe, community organization, or multinational corporation.
