    I love how they used certain places in their community and explained how they contribute to the ecological development. I was really attracted to the places, how clean they are, and how these young people are so aware of their contribution towards change.

    I think that your project is a great way to try and raise awareness about erasing your ecological foot print through the apartments and through transportation. In addition, they are high quality images that clearly portray what you are talking about in the caption.

    It is great that your community has thought of not only the ecological aspects of development, but also ways to sustain them. Some people usually tend to brush aside feasibility when coming up with projects involving the environment, but it is good to know that you have thought of this thoroughly by thinking of how to sustain such ideals, appealing to a wide variety of interests for the community which will definitely help raise funds as well as create awareness.

      Well done! Many people still think eco-friendly alternative lifestyle is unrealistic. By highlighting eco-friendly features around you, I am sure that your project can raise awareness of the environment and encourage other people to seek similar alternatives. I also like how detailed your work is! There are many pictures, with detail of each of them. Perhaps you can encourage students from surrounding areas to undertake this project.

        Nice slide presentation! This is a great project, showing students’ concerns about sustainable development in the community and ecological system. I like how you focus on triple points to develop the community, like economic, environment, and attracting people to accommodate in the community. We have to balance these three things in order benefit from each of them. I so appreciate this project.

        I like how there were pictures from your actual town and not just stock photos from the internet. Also the issue was very interesting, the way that you are attracting more people to stimulate economic growth while simultaneously trying to reduce your carbon footprint. However, from this presentation it seems like you are making positive strides towards your goal.

        Aloha! Great job on highlighting your communities ecological footprint. I think that it is fabulous that young adults are aware of the places in their community that help our ecological development. Taking care of our environment is the first step to having a positive future. We must care for the world so that we may pass it on in a good condition.

          Like everyone else I to enjoyed your presentation, the fact that your community has the the ability to adjust then to give up. Not only will this help them but also inspire others to have a sustainable development. All in all good job and just keep it up👍.

          Great presentation! Very clear and easy to follow. It is interesting to see how your community has grown in order to both accomodate the growing population and develop itself sustainably, all while still maintaining its sense of community. It is also wonderful to see an economically advancing community still maintain its standards of sustainable development.

              I really enjoyed your slide show. I think it’s great that your community makes such an effort to be sustainable. I really liked the pictures and thought they were really beneficial in explaining the different aspects. The only suggestion I would have would be to make the font larger so it is easier to read. Great job!
