Presentation Abstract

The purpose of the project was to gather information that relates to the sustainability of Bucksport and the issues facing the town and use that information to find sustainable courses of action that the community may take. The group worked to gather information on several topics and issues including the culture, economy, politics, and natural attributes of the area. Through research, interviews, and collaboration the students gathered information that was examined through the lens of sustainable development in order to find potential solutions and provide data to the community for their dealings with the Horry County and Federal governments. A focus was placed on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a set of global and local interlinked goals and indicators adopted by all member countries of the UN, the idea being "a blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all." The group began finding which issues and factors related to which of the 17 sustainable development goals. These goals were then used as a guide and template for determining the best actions for the community to take moving forward. Rather than only looking for quick and temporary solutions, the group worked to figure out more sustainable routes that will do more to support the community in the long term and help it to endure through both current and future issues.
