He learns in the conclusion of his year that in reality, there is no life totally free of environmental impact. The goal of humans, as the main caretakers of the earth and responsibility holders, should be to make a positive impact that balances out any negative impact created rather than avoiding making no impact at all.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
