WCEC1999 Sustainable Solutions

For Post Primary Teachers & Post Primary SNA's only

It is intended that teachers will learn about the meaning of sustainability and be able to differentiate between economic, environmental and social sustainability. They will learn how small, individual choices that they make daily can affect the sustainability of energy resources used and will be more aware of the consequences of their choices on the secondary effects of climate change. Finally, at the end of the workshop teachers will be better equipped to share their knowledge on sustainability with their students, back in the classroom.
The workshop covers the following learning outcomes:

Science EaS7: Illustrate how earth processes and human factors influence the Earth's climate, evaluate effects of climate change and initiatives that attempt to address those effects

Science CW10: Evaluate how humans contribute to sustainability through the extraction, use, disposal, and recycling of materials

Home Economics 2.7: Identify how individuals, families and households can contribute to sustainable and responsible living

Home Economics: 1.15 Investigate the impact of their food choices from an ecological and ethical perspective

Geography: 2.6 Examine the causes and implications of climate change

Maths: U.7 make sense of a given problem, and if necessary mathematise a situation
