  • What sustainability or environmental justice learning or action opportunities would you like to lead, support, or participate in?
  • What specific sustainability and environmental justice solutions should we pursue on and beyond campus (e.g. with community partners or alumni)?
  • What is already happening in the broader field of sustainability?
    • Do you have any existing examples of innovative climate solutions, education, or sustainable practices from places other than Carleton that you would like to share?
    • What about these models would you be excited to see at Carleton?
