environmentally aware

It's the week in which my Writing and Photography students have divided into groups and prepared documentary presentations - very competently, so far.  One group, today, talked about USC and environmental awareness: interestingly, they started off very sceptical about how aware the campus is - or isn't - but found that indeed, there are, in fact, lots of initiatives in place - it's just that no one notices them, least of all the students.  So their point was, in the end, that much more effort needs to be made in getting across the message.  I loved this image - a janitor pulling a lot of trash walking in one direction, a student in the other, whilst on the wall behind, two placards.  On the left, the dark grey plaque with the name of the college and donors; on the right, something actually proclaiming that this is station #5 on the USC Environmental Tour.  I'm sure I wasn't the only person in the room who walks past this daily, and never noticed it, and certainly never knew that there was any such set of posters ...
