Guam - The University of Guam's Center for Island Sustainability Conference got underway today in Tumon. The focus of the conference is "Guam in 2050 - What is the Cost of Doing Nothing?" The conference forces everyone to think out of the box

"One of the things we were thinking of what if on day we only ate food that we grow here. Because so much of what we should in and fly in that's what we consume in so its really getting people to think about changing behavior," said UOG marketing director Kathleen Moore-Linn, who was one of the guest speakers. She said there's two types of change: the change that you make and the change that happens to you

"So really this conference is all about what kind of change do we need to make for ourselves based on our own decisions before the change happens to us from pressures outside," she said.

The conference continues tomorrow.
