Walking to Zero

A project led by Sally Chan and Student Sustainability Architect (SSA), Maureen Kewe.

One of the Student Sustainability Projects this year is designed to get students to reconnect to their landscapes through the 'To Walk Project'

The 'To Walk Project' is the brainchild of Steve Hoffman, a product designer, and educator with thirty years of experience in 3D design, photography, and graphics.

According to Sally:

walking is the most sustainable means of getting from A to B with many health benefits... However, many students dread walking seeing this as the only option available. Maybe it is raining or it is too cold, or they are lonely, or engaged in distracted walks with devices in hand. We felt it was important to change the students’ mindsets so that walking becomes a pleasant reflective activity. It made perfect sense for us to collaborate with Steve to get students to think differently about their daily commute to campus
