Which sustainability component will your lesson focus on?
What related problem/issue will you present?
Our presentation presented the issue of waste management. The amount of waste humans produce is overwhelming. The techniques we employ to treat waste products can be harmful to the earth and are unsustainable.
What supporting facts characterize the problem?
The U.S. produces the greatest amount of the world's waste although it does not have a significantly large population in comparison to other nations.
What solution will you offer?
We will promote recycling and composting. Recycling minimizes the amount of waste that goes in to landfills. Compost is a way of returning output to the earth, thus reducing waste.
What action or actions do you want people to take as a result of your lesson?
We want people to be aware of the amount of trach they produce and realize that it is not realyy thrown 'away". We want them to understand that "away" is a harmful landfill or the ocean. With this knowledge we hope that people will participate in recycling and composting activies more.
