About Course

This course enables students to strengthen and persist to develop an understanding of Sustainability. Students will learn about water for life, clean air to breathe, healthy organic food along with sound education. They will be given the opportunities to improve vocabulary and literacy of climate through teaching numbers, colours, shapes, letters, colouring and paining. They will associate colours with greenhouse gas, fruits with earth, play park with forestry, rivers, waterfalls, oceans with water. The learning objectives for the course are to understand the critical nature of sustainability; demonstrate knowledge of the Sustainability Development Goals; apply the knowledge of sustainability to…
This course enables students to strengthen and persist to develop an understanding of Sustainability. Students will learn about water for life, clean air to breathe, healthy organic food along with sound education. They will be given the opportunities to improve vocabulary and literacy of climate through teaching numbers, colours, shapes, letters, colouring and paining. They will associate colours with greenhouse gas, fruits with earth, play park with forestry, rivers, waterfalls, oceans with water. The learning objectives for the course are to understand the critical nature of sustainability; demonstrate knowledge of the Sustainability Development Goals; apply the knowledge of sustainability to students’ daily lives; and be able to produce a PowerPoint presentation by relating the definition to their environment e.g., air, water, building, garbage, plastic pollution, water pollution, and simple energy patterns. They will also be given challenges to find the relationship between liveability and sustainability. Finally they will produce a plan of an equitable city with all necessary elements indicating with proper colours and scale.

A. Defining Sustainability
• This lesson will introduce what is known as the Brundtland definition of sustainability. This definition is derived from a report on global environment and development by the Brundtland Commission called Our Common Future, published in 1987. • Basic Human Needs will give an understanding of the resources needed to achieve physical and emotional well-being. • Also, this unit will demonstrate how do the actions of one generation affect future generations.

B. Discovering your sense of Place
• The unit will teach what “Sense of Place” means and how it can be developed. • The unit also describes how “Sense of Place” influences the worldview. • This lesson examines the connection between sense of place and sustainability

C. Environmental Sustainability
• Demonstrates an understanding of Sustainable Development that talks about population growth, non-renewable energy resources and population activities impacting environment. • Sustainable Society explains the economics, ecology, and equity in details. • Relationship between Energy and Density basically shows graphical relationship between Energy Consumption per Capita vs Population Density. • Global Sustainability demonstrates how to sustain economic growth, maximize profit, expand markets and to externalize costs • General Indicators give an understanding of new sources of energy, less water intensity, lower material intensity (packaging), recycling system, efficient waste disposal, increased agricultural productivity and provide collective (transit) and private mobility. • Other than that, this unit elaborately demonstrates barbarization, conventional world and the transition.

E. Global Warming
• This unit describes that even the richest countries of the world cannot control widespread fires, deadly flooding due to a global warming of just 1.1 degree Celsius. • The unit also demonstrates the ways to curb carbon emissions as much as possible through different ways by 2100

F. Water Sustainability
• This unit demonstrates why water is scarce in some areas of the world. • The unit also teaches the students in details how can good choices about water support sustainability. • The unit also concentrates on reuse of waste water after proper treatment.

G. Future of a Vacant Lot:
• This unit will help students to examine a vacant lot and identify how to improve it through the Three Pillars of Sustainability. • Students will learn to analyze Public Spaces for their issues with Three Pillars of Sustainability and propose solutions for them • The lesson will also identify investors for different projects and finally create a complete map of a sustainable city.
