Here we go folks. One week till winter vacation and we will be wrapping up our energy case studies. At this point in the current case study, your group should be done the with the background (history of energy use in the United States), the issues/conflicts (largely peak oil and exponential energy use), and should have started working on the challenges for the future. We will review existing plans to mitigate energy conflicts and begin crafting action plans this week. Each group’s plan may look a little different, as each of you have chosen to focus on a different element of our current global energy crisis. In crafting your action plan, remember to make specific references to the proposed or attempted solutions. Weigh in on the benefits and limiting factors to these ideas and discuss specifically what your group recommends and why you recommend this.
Welcome back folks! I hope you had a restful and enjoyable break. This week in C.S.C. we are going to finish our asset maps and reflections, and share some of the community assets that we believe are vital to a sustainable community. We will conclude the week by introducing our case study portfolio assignment. We will begin with “food,” a case study that intersects all levels of community, and frankly an issue that is impossible to avoid as a human living in communities. Check back soon for details and downloads.
