It’s great to see the changes this program is making so that students and faculty can engage in more sustainable practices! I think one of the best things we can do as individuals is to inform ourselves on the environment so we have a better idea of exactly why we need to practice a greener lifestyle. Personally, I enjoy learning from documentaries as they are easy to digest and often really beautiful! I recently found one called “More than Honey” and it’s about the important role bees play on this planet and even goes as far as to contrast capitalism and craftsmanship within beekeeping practices. I found it on a website called Film Festival Flix which has loads of nature documentaries through their mountain & adventure channel as well as other great films I haven’t seen on other platforms! This has been a great way for me to learn more about why I should practice sustainability and how to implement it in my daily life so hopefully, this is as helpful for you as it was for me!

I am reaching out to you as we at @EchoVoices (link to page https://www.facebook.com/OfficialEchoVoices/) are quite impressed by what your organization and your members embody. Thus, we would like to ask if you are interested in being a contributor for an upcoming social venture that will not only allow your members to connect with each other but reach individuals just as passionate and engaged as you are from all corners of the globe. Based in Orange County, California, we are a social platform focused on causes, doing good, and movements across the globe. There are 4 major parts to our website: 1. Voices: This is for members to share their thoughts and the heart of the platform which is where the name of our platform comes from. 2. World: (News/ Articles/ Opinions/ Insights) We scour all over the world and discover the most interesting, unique, and thought-provoking articles, videos, stories, art, documentaries, and movements that cannot be found on mainstream media to provide our members different perspectives. 3. Mentoring: Members can pose questions to our mentors who are thoughtful leaders in their respective fields. 4. Petition, Movement, and Pay It Forward: To inspire and encourage our members to speak up, share their passions, and inspire others to do the right thing. As a contributor, you will get to interact with like-minded individuals also seeking to raise their voice and be a part of a growing community that is making a real impact on our society. It is important for us to note that this site is not for everyone. We encourage members to think critically about these various issues just as much as the sheer act of speaking up. That is where the challenge lies. Are you up for the challenge? If so, please visit our website: www.echovoices.com.
