We recently learned that students at Fukuoka Women’s University in Japan recently participated in NWEI’s Choices for Sustainable Living discussion course as part of an “Exploring Sustainable Living” program (which included a study trip to Australia to learn about sustainable applications underway in other countries). Students participated in the NWEI course during the program in order to more fully consider sustainable lifestyle choices and their implications.

Students shared some of their experiences on their group’s Facebook page and cited several group commitments after learning more about sustainability. Early action choices included not using elevators in the dormitories to save energy, buying less plastic bottles each month, thinking for at least 30 seconds before purchasing something, and discontinuing drinking mineral and bottled water. The students also mentioned how the NWEI course book helped them to begin making more sustainable food choices.

We are excited to hear about this group’s Choices for Sustainable Living experience!
