Make 1-2 national or international policy recommendations in a 1-page single-
spaced memo. These should be well-informed recommendations targeting your
issue with appropriate references. Keep in mind that policies enable and hinder

programs like Shape Up Somerville.
Each recommendation should be preceded by a heading that summarizes your
recommendation and followed by approximately ½ page of single-spaced text for
2 policy recommendations and 1 page of single-spaced text for 1 policy

details that will make the case for why this is a good recommendation?
3) Describe any potential political barriers to achieving this policy. If none,
4) Describe any potential barriers to implementing the policy. If none, state
Please use the same reference and citation format as the first two memos.
