I spent the past four years in a doctoral program studying sustainability education. With each year in the program, I began to view sustainability as something that begins from within.
Practice what you preach
Walk the talk
Be the change
These are common phrases I have heard that speak to my own definition of sustainability.
I believe that I can change the world in my way of being. Story-to-Song is one way that I can effect positive change for the sustainability of my own life and hopefully that of others.
My dissertation, Becoming Sustainable: An Autoethnography in Story and Song, is a study of sustainability through an individual lens. I analyze my own path to creating a more sustainable life and in creating an identity of an artist and musician.
