Comment: Hello, I am hoping to get some feedback on the scope of the stretch. I am not sure if I stretched to wide and the interviews would be interesting but not informative in the way that this lesson hopes… I guess mainly for example the three individuals cooking all know they are cooking but here when I divide things up by socioeconomic status /gender/ and then conceptualize things like systematic oppression, racism, and varying impacts of environmental degradation It seems that those being interviewed may not even know or be aware of their privilege (ie. access to natural space) or lack there of (think scientifically proven research for green spaces and heart rate reduction). I got the notification for the open hours and wonder if someone might be best informed in supporting me though thinking about this feedback loop.
COMMENT: I just want to be sure that I’m understanding correctly It takes a broad coalition to fight such a large crisis and most of the extreme examples I identified were of people (farmers, fishers, surfers…etc) who have been negatively impacted by climate and would maybe become an advocate for action to slow down or curb climate change. I agree that it’s important to view lenses from both sides, and I felt that most of the lenses I included were extremes from the “positive” side of the aisle and I think you for your comment because it has me thinking about the tone and I’d like to better understand how to find the casual green consumer. Another archetype could be of this Casula green consumer who is following the green labels.
COMMENT: I think this is coming from my previous work with veteran populations and equine assisted psychotherapy. In my introductory threads I posted about my background but I feel one is not removed from the environment although the two study populations are made to seem very different out of social structures… I think what’s most interesting to me is that environmental influencers may be utilizing resources and have skills that isolated 65+ seniors/veterans could benefit from. From a persons center or strengths based approach I think this leaves room for comparative interviews to understand how community integration and utilizing resources/hilighting the strengths of the youth could lead to interesting solutions for all the problems. If school don’t open up we will have many lonely seniors and many unsupervised teens.
