Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

The Arboretum is not lit, making it inaccessible for pedestrians, cyclists and public transportation users. By lighting pathways, roadways ad bus stops, we can ensure safety and accessibility for many more visitors. This is tackling the broader issue of Social justice, by affording people who aren’t able to (or choose not to) use vehicular transportation, and the lights will be 100% solar powered, ensuring a zero carbon footprint for the life of the project.
