Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

Despite their differences, Santa Cruz and Watsonville are deeply intertwined in confronting dilemmas ranging from transportation to affordable housing. A central concern of sustainability is for socio-ecological communities to thrive, taking into account metrics of human wellbeing, basic needs, and social equity alongside ecological measures. An exchange of communication and collaboration will be fostered through Alternative Spring Break at Colleges 9 and 10, focusing on issues of food justice.
