Goddard is a Place for People Willing to Bet on Themselves with Steve Wright

Steve Wright, student in Social Innovation and Sustainability,  knows a lot about being willing to bet on himself. He founded his own international organization, 4 Walls International, on the premise that “Trash creates jobs, sustainable housing, economic productivity and a healthier environment.” 4 Walls International helps local communities create projects and dwellings of art and utility out of trash to enhance communities, create jobs, and bring people together. Take a look at some of its projects here, and listen to Steve talk about Goddard as a place for change agents like himself in this short video, part of a new series filmed by Alexander Love, based on interviews with GGI students and faculty.
