    Great! I’ve realized and learned so much. 
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Learn More About Geothermal Energy
    Geothermal energy is reliable, abundant, and efficient. Project Drawdown states that public investment will play a crucial role in its expansion. In what ways (i.e. with money, time, advocacy) can you invest in geothermal energy?

    Nevaeh  Wilson's avatar
    Nevaeh Wilson 3/09/2021 6:03 PM
    I can invest my time in geothermal energy by looking up its benefits as well as the pros and cons. By doing so, I can educate myself and others.
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Learn More about Wave and Tidal Energy
    What did you learn about wave and tidal energy? How do they compare to other energy sources?

    Nevaeh  Wilson's avatar
    Nevaeh Wilson 3/08/2021 3:55 PM
    Wave energy uses kinetic forces of waves to generate electricity, while tidal energy used gravitational pull of Earth. They compare to other energy sources by their use of force. Kinetic and physical are very common regarding energy.

    What does your vision of a sustainable community look like? What would need to be changed in order for such vision to become reality?

    Nevaeh  Wilson's avatar
    Nevaeh Wilson 3/08/2021 3:50 PM
    My vision of a sustainable community looks like unity. In order for change to occur, everyone has to come together and be on the same page. Peoples mindsets and habits definitely would have  to change greatly.
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Learn More about Micro Wind
    Micro turbines can be placed on large structures to take advantage of stronger, steadier breezes. The Eiffel Tower now sports vertical axis turbines that produce electricity for use on site. Where could micro turbines potentially be installed in your city?

    Micro-turbines could be used in NYC for outdoor dining instead of the heated igloos.  
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Learn More about Biomass
    Had you ever heard of biomass technology before you took this challenge? What did you learn that surprised you? Share your new knowledge with your friends!

    Nevaeh  Wilson's avatar
    Nevaeh Wilson 3/08/2021 3:45 PM
    No I hadn't. I learned that combustible gas is created as a result and the breakdown of biomass feedstocks into transportation fuels occurs.

    Pretty good. I am discovering more and more.
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Healing & Renewal More Fruits And Veggies
    How does eating more fruits and vegetables and less meat positively affect yourself, other people, and our planet?

    Nevaeh  Wilson's avatar
    Nevaeh Wilson 3/01/2021 4:57 PM
    You become healthier and your body gets stronger. Others tend to follow, and our planet reduces the amount of industry meat consumed.
  • Reflection Question
    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?

    Nevaeh  Wilson's avatar
    Nevaeh Wilson 3/01/2021 4:46 PM
    It differs because you become more aware of what enters your body.
