This week we brainstormed major technological changes throughout human history and discussed what it took to create and bring these innovations to the world. We also learned about the Tipping Point and how fashion trends, such as Hush Puppies, went from almost being discontinued by the manufacturer to reaching a “Tipping Point” by appeared in every mall in America within 2 years. We also began to brainstorm all of the environmental issues affecting Boulder County through our environmental issue hike with Lynne Sullivan and the City of Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks. We know there are environmental issues in our community that can directly impact our health and the health of our ecosystem and planet. We also know that we have the freedom every day to make choices that are sustainable or unsustainable with regard to protecting and preserving our environment. What will it take for mainstream America to reach a “Tipping Point” in terms of making sustainable choices in their everyday lives?
