Cascade Design Collaborative Partner, Lisa Corry, participated as a Sustainability Ambassador for the Port of Seattle’s Environmental Industry Awareness Day on July 26, 2018.
26 student representatives from local youth empowerment groups were invited to participate with 6 environmental industry and science professionals. These professionals guided student reps through a process of understanding sustainability systems, systems thinking and problem solving for real world scenarios, and simulation of how to to respond when things don’t go as planned. Students reported their solutions to an audience of professionals and were given the opportunity to network with peers and professionals in the environmental industry.
Here’s to helping students explore environmental career pathways and local resources!
