Blog Assignment #1 – My Urban Sustainability Impact

Due 6 PM on 01/29

UICThere are approximately 27,000 students who attend UIC, an urban research university, in the heart of the Chicago region, which is home to almost 10 million
people. Such a large number of students and people are bound to have some impact on the campus, the city and its surroundings. Whether you live in the city or suburbs, your actions can have positive and negative effects on the man-made and natural environment.

Identify 2 or 3 sustainable and/or unsustainable impacts that you as an individual have on this planet.

Think about the following questions and address one of them: 1) What outside factors (things that are beyond your immediate control) make it difficult or easy for you to be sustainable? 2) What can you as a student or citizen do to be more sustainable for the UIC campus or your community? or 3) Consider your personal habits, the forms of transportation you use, and your overall perspective, what do you see as the most critical urban sustainability challenge for the coming decades?
