Defend Our Future

  • Rachel Lentz – r.lentz15@gmail.com
  • “We’re tired of waiting for our leaders to act on climate, so we’re challenging people like you to take action. Instead of sitting on the sidelines hoping someone else will act, you, the doers, the solvers, and the innovators, will help solve the greatest challenge of our generation. With your help, we want to show candidates of all parties that climate change is a priority issue for young voters, regardless of political affiliation. Defend Our Future is building a diverse coalition of partners that share the goal of finding actionable and common sense solutions to solving climate change. Working with student body presidents, campus administrators, actors, athletes, artists, musicians, businesses and others, we are building a nationwide movement of young people who support bold action on climate to protect the environment, their communities, and future generations.”

Mindful Source

  • Domenic Digregorio – domenic.deigregorio@colostate.edu
  • In our three stage curriculum we hope to build a generation of environmentally conscious individuals by incorporating values of sustainability into their daily lives. It will consist of some ice breaker games where we introduce the broad topic of sustainability. This first stage will end by narrowing our focus from sustainability to food production and consumption, and an introduction to the immersive experience ( a visit to a local farm and food coop). The second stage is the immersive experience where students will be participating hands on to learn the practices of a sustainable businesses in food consumption and production. The third stage will be a reflection of everything we have learned. We like to think of it as an “ice builder” where we will highlight practices the students can apply to their lives in order to be environmentally responsible consumers.
