Final Presentations

This semesters presentations were really interesting, with continued and new innovations from last semester. I think because of the added challenge of contacting stakeholders most people chose to focus their projects locally. A lot of the presentations focused on food banks, but all these groups seemed to focus on it from a different angle. Student […]

How far we’ve come

The global challenges class has done a lot for me. Whether that be by helping me change my day to day life to revolve around a more sustainable and conscious path, or by providing me with opportunities to attend a dinner which allowed me to proudly share my innovation with people who eagerly listened. Through […]
