From the Editor
As you can see from our lovely cover, created by the very talented Lam Le, this is our Sustainability Awareness Issue. Le took the concept of the carbon footprint to convey the message that our consumption habits inevitably leave an impact on this planet.
We should all be asking ourselves — what kind of footprint will we be leaving behind for future generations? Moreover, how big or small of a mess will we be forcing them to contend with? It’s a question I wish had been asked sooner, but hopefully it’s not too late.
For this issue, Interrobang’s writers focused on providing their fellow students with information on how they can decrease their own environmental impact. Some of the topics you’ll find include shopping sustainably, making better use of Fanshawe’s recycling bins, and thinking critically about the way some public figures have responded to the recent climate action movement (especially activist Greta Thunberg — check out our opinion section to read more).
Correcting mistakes and cleaning up messes takes hard work, but when the world as we know it is at stake, I’d say changing our lifestyles to be more sustainable is worth the effort.
Be sure to check out this week’s news stories, which include coverage on the federal election as well as a personal introduction to the new Fanshawe Student Union (FSU) president, Keren Nanneti. Our lifestyles section has pieces on Saveria’s new single, along with some creepy London stories to help you get into the Halloween spirit.
Finally in sports, you’ll find a thorough recap of how Falcons teams are doing so far.
That’s it for now, folks. Keep tabs by following our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and please remember to recycle your copy of Interrobang.
And so it goes,
