 Jen Rodgers
Sustainable Practice Advisor
Wandering around campus, Jen Rodgers was struck by the juxtaposition of the Otago Polytechnic sustainable garden lying alongside a couple of the messiest Scarfie streets in Dunedin, filled with debris and litter. This ignited in her a desire to see if it could be possible to change Scarfie culture, and help students “match up their personal lives with what they’re learning "sustainability" in the classroom”.
