If we're going to reduce damage to the environment as the population grows, we need to teach young people about sustainability and recycling.  Southern Oregon University takes the mission seriously, even winning awards for its sustainability efforts. 

And there's a new person heading up those efforts; Rebecca Walker recently joined SOU as Sustainability and Recycling Manager

She comes to Ashland from a long way off: the Scottish Environment Protection Agency.  Walker visits the studio to talk about her work past and future.
