The first step is to submit a proposal for your project by Sunday of Week 2.
Each student’s project must be unique among the others in your discussion group
For this reason, I want you to select three different possible themes.
PROJECTS BASED ON HONEY BEES ARE NOT ALLOWED
Instructions for your Project Proposal
State your field of study.
Identify three separate critical issues in your field of study that have been influenced by an insect.
For example, if your field of study is Public Health, one option is Zika virus.
You may borrow issues from your Search Engine Assignment.
Make sure each issue is complex and interesting enough to support a 1250-word project.
Identify the insect that influences each issue.
In the example above, the influencing insect is the Aedes mosquito.
You must specify your featured insect to the family, genus or species level.
Provide a brief justification for how each issue relates to your field of study.
List your three issues in order of preference (i.e. list your favorite one first).
Submit your proposal in the following format:
Field of Study: Public Health
First Choice Issue: Zika virus in the southern U.S.
Featured Insect: Mosquito (Family: Culicidae; Genus: Aedes)
Relevance to Field of Study: In 2016, the World Health Organization declared the Zika virus epidemic as an international public health emergency.
Second Choice Issue: Macaroni virus
Featured Insect: Noodle bug (Pastus pasti)
Relevance to Field of Study: Macaroni virus, a public health emergency in the nation of Rigatoni, is vectored by the noodle bug.
Third Choice Issue: …and so on
Featured Insect: …and so forth
Relevance to Field of Study: …etc.
How Proposals are Graded
When you submit a proposal with your three issues, you will get 10 points.
If your first choice is available and acceptable I will approve it.
You will receive the full points once you confirm that you have read my comments.
If your first choice is no longer available, I will look at your second choice, and so on.
You will receive full points once you confirm that you have read my comments.
If part of your proposal needs revision, I will provide comments and questions for you to consider.
I encourage you to engage in conversation with me until we have found a project theme that works.
You will get full points when your revisions are approved and you confirm that you have read my final comments.
PROJECTS BASED ON HONEY BEES ARE NOT ALLOWED
Honey bees get a lot of press, and I want to let the other bugs enjoy the spotlight.

Please review your notes from class and use the doc SusSysSU21 PowerPoint LINKS_

Please review your notes from class and use the doc SusSysSU21 PowerPoint LINKS_Wk02_6-09-2021 to refresh your thoughts about the carbon cycle. Consider writing several HAIKU!s so that you can select the best one (or more) to post. You can go to this page (Links to an external site.) in order to refresh your understanding of the format for HAIKU, and this page (Links to an external site.) to see classic examples.
TOPICS:
Solar energy, photosynthesis, internal & external sources of energy on earth, food chain, carbon dioxide, Keeling Curve, emissions from various sources, methane, greenhouse gases, fossil fuels: coal, oil, natural gas, carbon capture, carbon sinks, slow & fast carbon cycles, atmospheric carbon & climate, drawdown, Project Drawdown. Yes, you were (probably) there!
As a way of processing this information we played with the idea of writing a short HAIKU poem about one of the above topics, and wrote one just to get us started. The idea is that your HAIKU genuinely reflects some understanding of the subject you selected to write about. Please remember that haiku poems typically have these characteristics:
Traditional format: 3 lines, 17 syllables = 5 syllables in the first line + 7 syllables in the second line + 5 syllables in the last line
You do not need to follow the traditional format!
Best haikus have a little surprise, or twist, or POP!
PLEASE WRITE 3 HAIKUS!

PART 1 Instructions In this course, you will be working on a cumulative project

PART 1 Instructions
In this course, you will be working on a cumulative project in Units II, III, and V. This first portion (Unit II) of the course project involves a life cycle analysis (LCA), the second portion (Unit III) will be a pollution prevention (P2) audit, and the third portion (Unit V) will focus on corporate philosophy related to P2. You will be choosing one product to study and research throughout those three units; therefore, it is advised that you read the requirements of all three course project assignments before making the choice of what product you want to research.
If you need ideas while choosing a product, refer to later chapters in your textbook (Chapters 23–32). Each of those chapters is narrowed down to a specific industry that may interest you. It is not required for you to use a product in the textbook; however, these chapters could be of assistance if you are having trouble determining which product to choose.
LCA
The Unit II Course Project requirement is to prepare an LCA of a product of your choice. Your LCA should:
be qualitative and quantitative,
be written in paragraph form,
include tables and figures (if applicable),
include a section exploring the value of ISO 14001 certification, and
not be a simple LCA with only items and quantities.
To successfully complete this part of your project, ensure that you are examining the example LCAs explained in your course textbook and the unit lesson. These resources will be invaluable to you.
You must utilize information in the course textbook and at least one peer-reviewed article from the CSU Online Library. In your paper, limit the number of direct quotations. The vast majority of your paper should contain paraphrased information from your sources and should include your own thoughts on the life cycle assessment.
Your project should be at least two pages in length. A title page and references page must be included; however, these pages will not count toward meeting the minimum page requirement. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.
TWO SEPERATE ASSIGNMENTS————————————————————
Part 2 Instructions
The Unit III Course Project is a continuation of the assignment that began in Unit II. The first portion of the course project involved a life cycle analysis (LCA). This second portion is a pollution prevention (P2) audit. The third portion, which will be due in Unit V, will focus on corporate philosophy related to P2.
P2 Audit
The Unit III Course Project requirement is to use the same product you chose in Unit II to explain the aspects of a P2 audit. In addition to summarizing the three phases of the audit (planning, assessment, and analysis), ensure you have covered any steps you would take specific to the product you have researched.
You must utilize information in the course textbook and at least one peer-reviewed article from the CSU Online Library. In your paper, limit the amount of direct quotations. The vast majority of your paper should contain paraphrased information from your sources and should include your own thoughts on the P2 audit.
Since the course project is cumulative, please include the LCA from your Unit II submission in a section titled “Life Cycle Assessment,“ which should have an APA Level 1 heading (centered, bold). The LCA section should be followed by the new section titled “Pollution Prevention Audit,” which should also be formatted as an APA Level 1 heading.
This portion of your project should be at least two pages in length, which is in addition to the two-page LCA submitted in Unit II. Please make changes in your LCA section per your professor’s Unit II feedback.
A title page and references page must be included; however, these pages will not count toward meeting the minimum page requirement. Adhere to APA Style when constructing this assignment, including in-text citations and references for all sources that are used. Please note that no abstract is needed.
