ES&P Lunchbag: Sustainable Solutions Capstones
December 11, 2012
Come hear from three student groups presenting their seminar capstone projects. Sarah Hussain and Stefanie Cervantes will be presenting "Ambergris Caye: The Road to Clean Energy." Ambergris Caye is heavily dependent on the importation of electricity, which is often unreliable and comes from fossil fuels. We are proposing the implementation of a renewable energy farm, specifically solar and wind, to pave the path to clean energy independence. Emily Barbour and Elli Levy will be presenting "Sustainable & Accessible Food, Ambergris Caye, Belize." his presentation is a proposal for increasing food access though sustainable and local food production on Ambergris Caye, Belize. We adress environmental setbacks on the island such as poor soil quality and limited water supply by suggesting cost and space effective methods for a community garden. Additionally, we are exploring school gardening programs and using models from non-profit organizations on the mainland to demonstrate systems that could provide fresh, affordable food on Ambergris Caye. And Dalyn Houser and Abby Dornbusch will be presenting "Rainwater Catchment Systems Implemented at Hotels on Ambergris Caye, Belize: Why Wouldn’t you invest?" Due to the strain on water resources on Ambergris Caye we propose that all hotels implement rainwater catchment systems as a supplemental source of water. The privatization of water has caused water to become an expensive commodity and investing in a rainwater catchment system may cost an initial amount but is worth the investment in the long run. Lunch will be provided.
