I have always considered myself to be well-educated about the environmental problems that our world faces today. Through my involvement with various student groups and environmental initiatives, I have realized that one of the largest problems with increasing environmentalism is just educating and communicating with people about why they need to care.
As such, I found this class to be especially useful. It has opened my eyes to the considerations to make in trying to communicate with others. It helped me realize your message is not nearly as effective without proper attention being paid to the audience or the medium through which a message is conveyed. As someone who wants to educate and raise environmental awareness, I find this extremely important.
