I have always attempted to play my part to protect the environment, be it taking the extra flights of stairs, or preventing my mom from “accidentally” chucking my collection of recyclables! Yes, these conscientious habits are good – but EVMT has been a program that has breathed real meaning into them. There were classes that emphasized so pointedly the severity of climate change, resource depletion and excessive waste that I felt as if it was all doom and gloom for us! However, at the same time, other classes would help me understand that great leaders and followers are out there, striving hard for a sustainable future. Thus, through the lenses of different disciplines, EVMT has allowed me to realize that I can do much more beyond developing conscientious habits, in order to be a responsible steward on this beautiful world God has given us!
