An Artistic Alternative
For a capstone project, we were given the opportunity to work the United Nation 17 sustainable goals. I chose to focus on the third sustainable goal; good health and wellbeing. I wanted to research and find alternative ways to deal with stress and promote wellbeing in young adults. I enjoyed working on this project as it incorporated a passion of mine. I enjoy journaling as a way to deal with my own stress and learning how therapeutic it can be. Creativity is within everyone and it is something that we often push aside when we become adults, as a society our focus has deemed creativity as an frivolous pursuit. Programs that involve different arts are systematically being removed from the educational system as educators have placed their focus on STEM. This project will be featured at the Alberta eco trust gathering on April 5, 2019.
