Learning Activity 2: Investigating an environmental issue

  • Working in pairs, choose one of the environmental issues you identified in your community and investigate it in more detail.

  • Here is a question to help you focus your enquiry: Describe an environmental issue in your community. What are the causes of the issue, how does it affect people and the environment, and what can be done to address the issue?

  • Investigate the issue by gathering information to help you answer your enquiry question. For example, you can do fieldwork, take photographs, conduct interviews and consult maps, articles and the Internet.

  • Analyse the information you have gathered. Describe the issue, its causes and how it affects people and the environment.

  • Discuss what could be done to address the issue and suggest solutions.

Learning Activity 3: Reporting on your findings

  • Write a report or design a PowerPoint presentation that describes your issue, its causes and effects. Illustrate with photographs, maps, graphs and/or charts. (Maximum two A4 pages or five slides.)

  • Write a formal letter to the local community newspaper. Describe the issue you have researched and suggest possible solutions to the problem. (One A4 page.)

  • If you produce a hard copy report, design in addition an educational poster (A3 size) to raise awareness about the issue and to encourage people to participate in solving it.

  • Draw up a bibliography of resources used in compiling your report.
