Hello Everyone, my name is Jessica Dickey. I am a double major for Psychology and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies with a minor in Disability Studies. I am taking this class to meet my GQ requirement, especially because I will be graduating this December. I have taken a couple different courses that have focused on topics dealing with sustainability and the environment, so I figured this class would fit my needs while also giving me even more of an outlook on these topics. One of the topics I have found really interesting in other classes has been the focus on green spaces and greener alternatives to traditional issues that we face as individuals in our society today. One of the more interesting things I’ve learned in other classes and would like to learn more about are more environmentally friendly burials. I have read in other classes about how harmful burials can be on the environment and also that there just isn’t enough space for our population. There are many current works being tested such as green pods or tree burials that can help solve these issues and help the environment directly.
