Project Sustainability

Each month, the show welcomes a new guest who will unpack a specific topic, spanning multiple episodes. Host Peggy Smedley will dive into her guest’s desire to provide alternatives that will empower each of us on what it means to have a healthy home. Simply all the innovations from energy, air, water, lighting, security, appliances, and more that impact our homes.

With a focus on technology—and how it works in the home—listeners will gain a deeper understanding of what’s coming next and what’s already possible today. Determined to give a glimpse into the future, Smedley ends every series with the same question: How can we do even more simply by managing our energy consumption to help make the world healthier, safer, and greener today and for future generations?

Peggy Smedley and Pete Evans, assistant professor, Iowa State University, talk about the worker of tomorrow and how to inspire and equip the next generation. He says we try to instill with the students an idea of how to think about the world. 

They also discuss:

  • The scientific method and the four Cs: creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and complex communication.
  • How many workers are worried that automation is putting their jobs at risk and how many workers are ready to learn new skills.
  • Who the worker of tomorrow is and the age of augmentation.
