Additional documentation to support the submission:

Currently no plan to pursue this credit. A student worker of the STAR program went ahead and asked a small portion of students and staff.

Personal Conclusion: Students show a very positive attitude toward sustainability without knowing how to pursue it. Some students find more urgent to do something about it.
Staff members show to have the same positive feeling toward sustainability and put most of their trust in the next generation to solve it. A few even seem detached, admitting climate problems but treating it as their least concerning issue.
