Following a great conclusion to our Elections 2016 blog series, we are very excited to announce the relaunch of our Going Green blog!
For the next few months, Teach About Us will pivot away from US politics and instead towards issues of sustainability, environmentalism, and green living. This semester, our intern-bloggers are attending universities all across the United States, meaning that we will focus on Going Green at a local and state level! Each week, we plan to share with you uniquely German and American perspectives, highlighting the ways we ‘go green’ in our daily lives and how we can all seize innovative opportunities to support and protect our planet. With a great team of bloggers and experts assembled, we look forward to publishing pieces on a variety of topics, including sustainable agriculture, clean transportation, renewable energy policy, and college-campus activism.
It is our hope that the Going Green blog will serve as an engaging complement to the curriculum you all will be exploring in class over the next semester. As you learn about fashion, plastic waste, transportation, and urban living, please look to our blog for some real-life examples of how Germans and Americans are learning as you are while making a positive impact on their world.
As always, please feel free to reach out to anyone on the Teach About Us Going Green team with your feedback and questions. We’re all looking forward to a great semester together!
