Environmental and Global issues are the man-made problems negatively affecting our planet and its future. Processes such as waste disposal, pollution, overpopulation, deforestation and global warming are said to be just some of the contributing factors proving detrimental to life on earth.
Environmental and Global issues are of great concern to children and young people today, with many of them feeling pessimistic about the future. Exploring these topics helps pupils develop a greater understanding of how small actions – negative AND positive - can have a global impact. Discussion around this complex notion can help students feel more hopeful and encouraged to contribute to positive change.
