Let's get those artistic brains a churnin' today! Analyze the cover The Gulch magazine through the three spheres of economic, environmental and social/cultural sustainability!

Sustainable Development Project Brainstorm!
Project Essential Question: What needs to be sustained more holistically in our own community and how might we do so in a way that takes into consideration environmental, economic and social/cultural needs?
Framing: It is time to choose an issue of sustainability for us to focus on as a class for our final project. But first, you need research one issue of interest to you and write a proposal for why we should select that issue! More to come on that! To help you choose an issue, let's brainstorm as many issues of sustainability as you can think of at play in our community.
