Interns continue to work on rethinking the system, using research & analysis to develop effective approaches. Most projects are designed to help make the Lehigh Valley more sustainable while giving students hands-on experience. This spring, we are looking at two unique projects:
- Exploring the connections of food, health, & climate — and how to raise awareness about this critical topic.
- Researching the health impacts of artificial turf, with a goal of developing recommendations to guide schools & other institutions.
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.
