BYU Sustainability: Central to our Purpose, Integral to our Faith

BYU students, faculty, and staff share what sustainability means to them, answering the question: What is BYU doing to conserve resources, improve health, and increase understanding at a critical time for the university and the world? This film features Dr. Ben Abbott, professor of ecosystem ecology; Eliza Estes, a biodiversity and conservation major who worked in the Sustainability Office when this film was produced; Mahina Piena, a civil and environmental engineering major; and Eric Lemus, an environmental law student. Infigo Films, a local production company founded by BYU graduates, shot and directed the film.
