Spring 2015—This spring, our primary focus is on the health impacts of synthetic turf, with a goal of developing recommendations to guide schools & other institutions. As with our other internship projects, interns continue to use research & analysis to rethink the way we do things. Most projects are designed to help make the Lehigh Valley more sustainable while giving students hands-on experience.
We continue to support and work with a variety of efforts to help people get healthy food by promoting school & community gardens and access to food that truly supports health & sustainability. For an overview of the issues, see Healthy Food for Healthy Communities or our page on Sustainable Campus Dining Resources.
