What is Environmental Sustainability?
Being called 'green' is a good thing these days. Green is an attitude of conservation and preservation. But it can be confusing and touches upon a whole host of issues and buzzwords – renewable energy, climate change, environmental footprint, pollution prevention, sustainability, green tourism… and learning about them can be overwhelming for adults and students. This kit introduces some key concepts to help students and classrooms take a step toward understanding the shades of green. Everyday actions add up, so remember each person can make a difference. Click here to download the contents.
