What is Sense of Place?

Following the success of the Town Hall Meeting and the Chico Great Debate, the founders of SOP wanted a public sphere event that would have students from different courses and different class standings come together with faculty, staff, and community members to share projects and ideas around making our college and community more sustainable.

Today, SOP continues its mission towards a more sustainable Chico. As the event grows, so does its purpose. Students not only present on sustainable actions, they also share narratives of their identities rooted in place. Sustainability is our ability to preserve our identities by sharing solutions and taking actions that are Environmentally Sound, Socially Equitable, and Economically Feasible.
