Sustainable Living Series

Do you have interest in sustainability but are not sure where to start? Are you interested in learning ways to expand your strategies to live more sustainably and apply them not only at home, but in your community, as well? Then consider attending the online Sustainable Living Series course. This multi-topic series is designed and hosted by Extension systems at Michigan State University, Purdue University, and the University of Florida.

The Sustainable Living Series course provides attendees with a wide range of knowledge, including real-world examples to help strengthen critical thinking skills related to future sustainability actions and decisions. Series topics will explore how these interconnected systems function together and independently. Topics include: 

  • Sustainability 101
  • Consumerism
  • Energy
  • Food
  • Water
  • Applying what you have learned at home and in your community

Each topic is kicked off with a short informational video that explores trends, statistics, actions, and how leaders in sustainability are making a difference in our world. This is follow up with a 90-minute live webinar where participants ask questions, discuss topics, and engage in virtual hands-on activities. As a result of these activities, participants develop a personal sustainability plan outlining changes in behaviors and activities they plan to make in their own lifestyles. Participants are also encouraged to develop a similar plan for how they might become more engaged in sustainable lifestyle activities in their community.
