Building Peace and Progress on College Campuses

“Throughout modern history, students have been the engine that powers the most transformation of movements. From civil rights to women’s rights, students acted as catalysts for earth shifting change.”

Chapter Eight Questions: Here are some things to ponder

You don't have to answer them all, but answer the ones you care about most or add in your own sentiments.


  1. What are the four general advantages to better energy policy?
  2. Does participating in a crop mob sound like fun to you? Would this be a fun event for campus clubs or groups?
  3. How much of a difference could it make to the local economy if colleges committed to buying organic food from local farms?
  4. What are some differences between organic and modern agricultural methods?
  5. Do the colleges in your area work with local green energy groups?
  6. What was your favorite question from the chapter?
  7. Had you ever heard of wave energy before?
  8. Have you seen and learned about electric and/or hybrid vehicles?
  9. Do you think students are capable of working out solutions to some of the health or environmental issues discussed in this chapter?
  10. Do you think time banks could facilitate the “Green Revolution” on campus? 

Tell us how you feel about these thoughts. There were several questions within the chapter too. If you feel compelled to answer any of them instead of the ten above, do so. Share all of them with your friends and family and get your community involved in the solutions to our world.
