    Some interesting facts that I learned about other solutions for transporting, such as using an increased amount of hybrid cars and electric bikes.

    How do your transportation choices affect your engagement in your community? Does your experience or enjoyment differ while walking, riding transit, biking or driving?

    My transportation choices affected my my engagement in my community, causing me to interact with more people in my community and I have been more aware of my surroundings and the nature around me. But enjoyment did differ when walking and riding transit, and it caused me to want to do it more often.

    What did you learn about indigenous peoples' land management that you can apply in your own life?

    Junie Blaise's avatar
    Junie Blaise 4/19/2019 6:19 AM
    Something I can apply to my life that supports land management is that I can use other  alternative to then using nonrenewable items in my life, so forests and other land used by indigenous people aren't destroyed or taken away from them.

    Electricity Generation 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?

    Junie Blaise's avatar
    Junie Blaise 4/11/2019 4:34 PM
    A way I invest in geohtermal energy by investing my time to writing to my representatives to invest in the idea of using geothermal energy to a way to power places all around the world, also saving the planet and not using any nonrenewable resources to fuel the different places around the world.

    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle? How does considering implementing these "R's" make you feel?

    Junie Blaise's avatar
    Junie Blaise 4/11/2019 4:28 PM
    I can incorporate the other R's into my lifestyle, by reusing items that are still in good use. I can reuse the items I have but I don't really use by donating them to shelters or to people who actually needs or wants it more than I do. I can also reduce the amount of electricity I use by closing the lights in rooms that aren't being used or shutting off the lights in the morning when lots of light is filling the rooms.

    What have you noticed on your daily walks? What have you enjoyed? What infrastructure changes could make your walks more enjoyable or possible?

    On my walk today, I noticed the different shops and businesses in my neighborhood and I wondered how the businesses or the shops came to be or what the people that made this possible, and what they had to go through? I enjoyed just walking and not having to focus on anything else, and I also enjoyed the different flowers and trees that I saw during my walk.

    I learn that family planning is the right for people to decide if they want children and how many children they want. But in some places it isn't possible and for many they are  allowed the practice of family planning. However most of the time, they aren't using safe or effective family planning methods
  • Reflection Question
    Food Reduce Animal Products
    In your opinion, what contributes to people in North America eating more meat than any other countries? What does this say about North American values and ways of living?

    Junie Blaise's avatar
    Junie Blaise 4/02/2019 3:56 PM
    I think that the growth of population contributes to the fact that people in North America eat more meat than other other countries because since there is more people being born everyday, the amount of food decreases causing us to begin to look for something to eat. And we notice that new animals are also being born everyday, so we decide to eat them. At first, we ate modestly, but then the population began to grow even more. So then we begin get animals, and  start killing much more animals, so we can consume them and feed everyone. So it shows how North America's way of living is that we don't care for the wellbeing of the animals, but all we care about is when we can eat them.

    Women and Girls Support Women-Owned Businesses
    Globally, women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. How can you better support communities by supporting women? Can you share any past experiences that may help others take action?

    Junie Blaise's avatar
    Junie Blaise 4/02/2019 3:46 PM
    I can better support my community by educating or making others in my community aware of women owned or runned businesses. Also I can donate some of my money to organizations that support women's right, gender equality or even support women runned businesses. In my old school, we made pamphlets about how women made a difference or a change in our community and inspire other women to make a difference too.

    Women and Girls Research Barriers to Participation and Representation
    What are some of the barriers that exist to women's equal participation and/or representation in your community?

    Junie Blaise's avatar
    Junie Blaise 4/02/2019 3:05 PM
    Some barriers that exist to women 's equal participation and/or representation in my community are that there aren't really any woman role models that can set an example or inspire other women to make a difference or change. Also another barrieris that women aren't widely encouraged to participate in these groups and many members of these groups, were are usually men, don't also welcome women in these groups.
