    I can use instagram, facebook, strike up conversations with peers, or talk about insulating/retrofitting/net zero buildings to spread the word!

    There are still teen/young pregnancies in my community, perhaps because of inadequate sex education or societal norms, that limit participation.

    A more energy efficient home will save energy costs and reduce global warming from need for petroleum.

    Food Learn More about Regenerative Agriculture
    Clean air, clean water and healthy food are three reasons to care about regenerative agriculture. What are some other reasons?

    Regenerative agriculture can put back nutrients into the soil and help provide arable soil for years to come. This will also help with feeding the growing population in the future.

    Transport Research and Advocate for High-Speed Rail
    What are the factors that influence your choice of transportation? These can include things like money, time, and convenience, as well as perceptions of danger or safety. What would need to change for you to regularly choose more climate-friendly options?

    I consider factors like home much the transportation costs and how much time it takes to get to the place I want to go to. I would change to a more climate-friendly option if it was close by and could do the same things that ungreen ways of transportation could do.

    What did you find out? What is the most interesting fact you learned?

    I was surprised / interested to learn that "crop and livestock production is the source of about 1/8 of anthropogenic emissions. Land clearing (which is mostly for agriculture) is the source of another 1/8 of emissions." That's a lot of emissions!

    Electricity Generation Explore Other Electricity Generation Solutions
    What is the most exciting solution you explored? Why is it exciting to you?

    The most exciting solution for me may be small scale hydropower, mostly because it was the one I researched for APES class, but also because it can be used in so many places (developing and developed countries, anywhere there is enough flow) and it does not have to have a large environmental impact like large scale hydropower.

    Food Learn More about Silvopasture
    Had you heard of the term "silvopasture" before now? After learning more about it, what do you think is the biggest advantage of silvopasture?

    I hadn't heard of silvopasture before. I think the biggest advantage is that it prevents deforestation. Instead of cutting down trees to make fields for grazing space, the trees are the area for grazing. I would imagine that it would also be a much nicer place for the cows and chickens that live there.
