Single-Use Plastics: Possibilities for Stakeholder Engagement, or SUPPOSE, is under the Arete Sandbox Residency Program, and explores ecosystems that describe people's practices, consumption patterns and behavioral change when it comes to single-use plastics in the Katipunan-Loyola Heights area. We look into alternative technologies, systems, and practices that can be introduced to reduce single-use plastics from food deliveries on campus.

We hope to find answers to the following questions:

  • What would be an appropriate communications campaign to educate and inform stakeholders on practices/ impact of single-use plastics?
  • How can these EIC strategies be shared with academe, business, and government in the locality/region?
  • How can we challenge students to design entrepreneurial solutions for this problem?

Hearing Aid

Hearing Aid is another research project part of the Arete Sandbox Residency Program that merges the fields of environmental science, biology, communication, and human geography. We have been building a collection of audio recordings from various spaces of the Loyola campus and are featuring sounds of living things (biophony), sounds of wind, water, thunder (geophony), and man made noise (anthrophony) to challenge us to listen to our environment and deepen our connection with nature. You can listen to some clips from our library here in the Ateneo Wild Soundcloud.
