    We are in the home stretch Team WBA!!! Power through those daily challenges and look for some educational opportunities to learn something new and get challenge credit for doing it. Don't forget to do those those Reflection Questions! They'll give you 15 points each! Go back over the challenges you've done and fill them in for extra points.
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Support Indigenous & First Nations Communities
    Why is it important to honor native and indigenous peoples and cultures? What have you learned that is important to you? If you identify with or are a member of an indigenous group, how does your community practice sustainability?

    I think we have a lot to learn about land stewardship from indigenous peoples. So many of the place names we use every day came from the native languages and cultures that existed before colonization and settlement. "Chicago" is the indigenous Algonquin word for "onion".  Some of the other indigenous groups that originally lived in the Chicagoland area are the Potawatami, the Peoria, and the Kickapoo,

    Economy & Communities Online Energy Audit
    What most interested or surprised you about your energy audit?

    Maggie Tracey 4/26/2022 3:31 PM
    The use of infrared to detect temperature differences within walls was very cool, and the negative pressure test to see airflow. Will definitely be making some changes to reduce energy use and the money wasted by inefficiencies!
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Learn About The Health & Equity SDGs
    What was a linking factor across this group of SDGs?

    Maggie Tracey's avatar
    Maggie Tracey 4/20/2022 12:21 PM
    Generally speaking I think a link across all the goals is social responsibility. There are still many things we can do as individuals but there is an increased emphasis on what we can do on a larger societal scale. 
  • Reflection Question
    Economy & Communities Mend Clothing
    What was it like to mend your clothing? If you are skilled at mending, what tips do you have for others?

    I'm not skilled at all and it was still pretty easy to close up a little hole in a sweater. I saved the little packet of yarn that came attached to the tag when I bought it and was able to use it to camouflage and seal up a small hole. It was so easy it gave me confidence to try some other mending projects!
  • Reflection Question
    Basic Needs & Security Support A Renters Bills of Rights
    What was something important you learned about renter rights and affordable housing?

    Maggie Tracey's avatar
    Maggie Tracey 4/19/2022 1:30 PM
    No big surprises when I looked up the Landlord & Tenants Rights for the State of IL, but I think more people should familiarize themselves with what is expected of them as either a renter or a rentee. The rules about who is responsible for which bills, once agreed upon, etc. would be helpful in having the conversation and establishing expectations up front. 
  • Reflection Question
    Health & Equity Learn About Gender Diversity
    Why is equity for gender diverse individuals important for a just and sustainable society?

    Maggie Tracey's avatar
    Maggie Tracey 4/19/2022 1:25 PM
    Just being inclusive isn't enough, to be truly equitable, people of diverse backgrounds and experiences, including those who are female, male, transgendered, or non-binary, should have equal opportunity to have a seat at the table where decisions are being made (on hiring committees, in the talent pool, on boards and in executive positions).

    Halfway through the challenge today!! Doing the daily challenges has provided opportunities to do some quick research and learn more about things I hadn't spent time thinking about like water justice. I've also been encouraged by this to eat more vegetarian and vegan meals (tried "crabless" cakes made with artichoke and hearts of palm and buffalo cauliflower "wings" which were all delicious!!). Looking forward to taking on more challenges in the second half!!

    By investing in companies that are creating positive environmental or societal change and not using my wallet to support companies who do not.

    I find being prepared for all kinds of scenarios to be deeply satisfying. Sometimes when I feel anxious about things in life it is calming to imagine how I could respond to a number of situations and to mentally prepare for them.
