Interview with Maddy Moore, President of Students for Sustainability
What does the Students for Sustainability organization mean to you?
For me, this organization is a representation of a special community here at UL. It is a group of students who are passionate about the environment & sustainability & can come together to make real change on campus & in our personal lives.
What is Students for Sustainability doing?
Students for Sustainability aims to educate the UL community on sustainable practices on & off campus. We come together to learn, educate, and also have fun! We have gardening seminars, trips to the farmers market, and group hikes, just to name a few of our activities.
Why is this topic important to you?
I have always been passionate about the environment as far as I can remember. I would always play outside as a kid & that time gave me an appreciation for the outdoors & the passion to protect the environment we have. As an environmental science major who hopes to work in coastal restoration in the future, I am passionate about all things environment & sustainability related. I truly just want to see our community & environment thrive for future generations.
