    Transportation Conduct Virtual Meetings
    How can you ensure that your virtual meetings honor your values and your company's culture?

    Since I do not work for a company, I will apply this to my own personal experience as a student who has been a part of Zoom meetings before. How I am able to ensure that these meetings honor my values is by making sure I remain patient, understanding, and respectful of others. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Reduce Animal Products
    Why do people in richer countries eat more meat than people in other places? How does eating more meat affect our bodies, our planet, and other people?

    To answer the first question, it may also have to do with cultural, religious, and financial reasons. Eating more (red) meat is known to cause bowel cancer, cardiovascular disease, and an increase in greenhouse gas emissions.

    I and society as a whole could do more to protect Native peoples' effective strategies to help combat climate change. I learned that I can learn about which Native Land I reside in and support movements led by indigenous peoples.

    After you determined your carbon footprint, did you see what different choices you can make in order to reduce it?

    Some ways I can reduce my carbon footprint include the following: try a plant based recipe once a month, reduce food waste, reduce consumerism, compost my food, and do research into purchasing from companies that are more ethically responsible & sustainable.

    Action Track: Healing & Renewal Eat Mindfully
    Mindful eating is healthier for us than eating with distractions. How does your eating experience differ when practicing mindfulness?

    In my experience, I noticed while I was eating there was an urge to go on social media or turn on my television considering how that has somewhat become a habit for me. However, I allowed myself to fully enjoy my meal and recognize when I was truly full. 
  • Reflection Question
    Transportation Learn about Carbon Offsets
    What are some attributes of an offset that you should consider before purchasing them?

    Some attributes include permanence, additionality, verification, responsible conduct, and ease. Offset projects must have these attributes to be considered effective in achieving the main goal of reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases, and thus benefit the environment through reducing the effects of climate change.
