Earthian Challenge

By making and producing a video about sustainability through professional interviews and a challenge at the end of the video to motivate students to make a change in their lifestyle, she hopes to start a movement of change on campus. The challenge she would provide is called the Earthian Challenge. She is also working on making info graphics to display in the dining halls by working alongside University housing and dining to kick start a change in the thinking around campus about sustainability. She also hopes to focus on food waste specifically to make a change to reduce the amount of food thrown out in the dining halls and raise awareness about food inequality around the world.
