I pledge to ride my bicycle from home to university everyday, which is approximately a 6 km ride. This will hopefully encourage my friends and family to reduce their dependence on fossil-fuel run vehicles, which will also reduce traffic congestion on the road and improve their health as well!
I will build and commit to using a compost pile at home in order to reduce food waste entering landfill and harming the environment. As a benefit, I'll be able to get great breakdown products out of the compost for use on the garden.
-Introducing a culture and curriculum that prepares students with the innovative thinking and system's thinking necessary for sustainability literacy -Sustainability workshops run once or twice a semester via the 'My.Monash' booking system -Introducing an optional Moodle unit that offers information about sustainable development. (Similar concept to the 'Leap into Leadership' Program on Moodle) -
Simply ride my bike as much as I can whenever it's feasible. Instead of driving to soccer, the train station and friend's houses I'll ride my bike. The end goal will be to implement a bike riding scheme at Monash Clayton to get people to ride bikes to and from Huntingdale station instead of catching the bus.
I am sometimes guilty of sleeping in too much, and i will often miss my bus and have to take the car to the station. Occasionaly i will even have to drive all the way to university, which is a waste of money, time (that could be spent studying) and of course- a big waste of fuel. I will aim to reduce this by getting up early enough to catch my first bus! And checking up on the PTV to see what time it comes.
I'm always using reusable bottles and fill it up everyday. It's not that hard once you get used to it. Eventually you will save money and drink more water.
