    How does knowing the difference between use by, sell by, and best by dates empower you to make better decisions?

    It will ensure I check foods for spoilage before I decide to throw it out and not assume food cannot be had because it is past the use by, sell by or best by dates since these are just measures of quality

    I had heard about biomass energy but not researched it in depth. I found it so interesting how human waste also factors into this solution and how yet again the example of Kenya is used!

    Growing up in Kenya, I was always surrounded by such interesting natural scenes but a significant experience I can recall is my hike into a forest in Rwanda to see gorillas. It really put into perspective for me the simplicity of life for some beings and how beautiful forest life can be. I learned how much I love greenery and plants on that hike.

      I visted Rwanda two years ago, my last trip before the pandamic.  The majesty of those aniimals, and the diversity of life in Rwanda was eyeopening.

    Being outdoors allows us to experience things we are closed off from when we're inside. There are so many sounds, sights and feelings experiences from stepping outside. It's as simple as hearing the birds or feeling a fresh cool breeze after a few days indoors that make me smile and appreciate my life and my experiences.

    I was intrigued by all the projects I read about! Clean energy in Kenya excited me because I am from there and did not know so much of the energy used is renewable. I also think the district in Paris which is an eco-community is a very exciting concept!

    I learned about some cool initiatives some cities are undertaking to improve infrastructure such as installing LED street lighting. I also learned about the use of refrigerants in buildings that are GHGs. There's more than just retrofits that can be done to improve a building to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

    So happy to see all my teammates taking on actions that challenge their thinking and way of life! So much learning being done and I am all for it!!
  • Reflection Question
    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Smaller Portions
    While dishing food out, we tend to load our plates with more than we need. Using smaller plates helps to mitigate this. Aside from the environmental benefits, what other benefits might come from eating/serving smaller portions?

    Fatema Adamji's avatar
    Fatema Adamji 4/12/2021 2:01 PM
    Having smaller servings of food would impact our physical and mental health and assist with digestive issues, help us remain active and less lethargic and groggy and also would help reduce obesity.

    Good job on choosing recycled paper! How can you take your action a step further?

    I often choose recycled paper for note taking. I could definitely try to switch to methods that create even less waste such as virtual note taking or erasable ink.
