Description: Action plan initiative #3-implementing a living wall --> this scene will show what a living wall looks like demonstrating our action plan Script: (Narrator) -While most air circulation systems replace “old” air from inside with “new” air from outside, the natural filtration of the Plant Wall means that more air can be recycled. This fresh recycled air means there’s less need for heating and cooling, helping Laurier consume less energy and produce fewer carbon emissions — it’s not just the plants that are green. This is also a visually pleasing addition to campus and the students can be engaged with the installation of it.
Description: This scene will have inserted clips of what a net positive campus will look like and demonstrate the expected outcome of our action plan Script: (Narrator): With the three actions mentioned before and incorporating a student engagement plan throughout campus to inspire students to be apart of Laurier's sustainable action plan and achieve a net positive campus.

Description: conclusion of video summarizing our action plan and the importance of fighting climate change. Script: (Narrator): Just like (interviewee) even the smallest actions can have significant impacts on our planet just through the ripple effect that comes with all human actions. We hope we have inspired you to take climate change into consideration in your daily lives and help join the fight against climate change to protect the planet we live on.
Scene 3 (continued)
Description: Proposal of our action plan within Laurier to help fight climate change Script: (Narrator)- "as a long-term goal we aim to transition Wilfrid Laurier into a net positive campus to address the this issue. As a net positive campus, we would produce more energy than we would consume (Eley, 2016), through energy efficient technologies and renewable energy sources such as solar panels. We believe beginning with creating a sustainable culture at Laurier through an engagement model and specifically target first year students to be an important step in achieving our long-term goal of a net positive campus. Inspiring and capturing engagement of first year students who have their entire four years ahead of them will create a ripple effect of inspiring future students in adopting a sustainable culture reflected through their behaviours. In order to carry out the engagement model, we plan to implement the three following systems; 1. introducing sustainability events within O-week for first year students that promote and create awareness of specific sustainable actions students take within residence, 2. replacing light bulbs in residences with LED energy efficient ones, and 3. create a living wall addition to each residence that students can be involved in."
Description: Action plan initiative #1 - clip of previous year O-weeks Script: (Narrator) - promoting sustainable actions within O-week will inspire the future generation of laurier to leave an impression on the rest of campus to take sustainability into their own hands and bring awareness to climate change to eventually help every student at Laurier help in the effort of creating a net positive campus
Description: Action plan initiative #2 - clip of first year student replacing light bulbs in their room Script: (Narrator) - by replacing all light bulbs in residence buildings where lights are frequently left on for long periods of time to energy efficient LED light bulbs. this will significantly reduce Laurier's energy consumption and reduce campus emissions.
