What's Up, Myles?

When people ask Myles Robertson "what's up," they're going to hear about more than the weather or how his favorite teams are doing.

Myles Robertson is a fellow for the IU South Bend Center for a Sustainable Future.

Recent IU South Bend grad Myles Robertson is one of the campus's newly named fellows at the Center for a Sustainable Future.

Through his "What's Up, Myles?" YouTube series, the recent IU South Bend graduate shares his adventures as he seeks out stories of sustainability in action, from interviews with former South Bend mayor Steve Luecke and present mayor Pete Buttigieg to lighthearted bits with fellow students about local food and reuse of existing materials to prevent waste. (In one episode, he sports a bright pink pair of shorts he made from a piece of remnant fabric that was lying around.)  Watch Myles interview Jeff Snell, Marquette University at the 2012 Indiana Campus Compact Service Engagement Summit.

Robertson will continue the video project as one of the newly named 2012-13 fellows for IU South Bend's Center for a Sustainable Future, which will also enable him to expand projects, including a campus garden that he started as an undergrad and his work with the Gaia Sustainability Learning Community (a.k.a. Creek House), a sustainability-themed housing unit.
