  • Reflection Question
    Women and Girls Give a Microloan
    Globally, women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. Why do you think that is?

    i am not sure that this is an accurate statement.  Men are often the sole support for their families with their earnings paying household bills that feed, support, clothe and warm their families.  IF women do indeed invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families, then i would say that is because women take their children's success more personally than do men.

    I learned that: There are a lot of people doing some great things.  Thank You for doing this project.  I have some new ideas to think about and maybe even try or tweek for my own use.

    In raising Grass Fed Cattle, I am not putting any fertilizers, pesticides, or other chemicals on the pastures.  This way I know my Grass Fed Cattle never get any grain; and thus I know there is no glyphosate getting into my grass fed Beef.  Because of this lack of grain (which is high in Omega - 6)  I know that my Grass Fed Beef is higher in Omega -3.  I am finding out that the farmed salmon are now low in Omega-3 because of their grain diet and are showing glyphosate in them.  I only eat my Grass Fed Beef that I raise and take care of to the "Harvest plant".

  • I am so amazed and inspired by all the action and impact from everyone around the world!

    This has been a journey... extending for 22 days rather than 14 has made a difference. I have successfully finished the challenge and want to continue my plant based diet.

    Land Use Learn about Temperate Forests
    As you learn more about the scope and seriousness of the environmental challenges we face, what impact does that have on your thinking and actions? What are the parts that feel overwhelming? What parts help you feel hopeful?

    No es facil, todo abruma en especial las cifras... Pero no hay tiempo para eso, necesitamos actuar ya y dar elegir actuar sin prisa y sin pausa.

    Change your travel behaviour, think more in terms of public transportation, if possible, walk or ride your bicycle instead of taking the car
