Description - Understanding Environment by Kiran Chhokar
Understanding Our Environment addresses the issue of environmental sustainability and aims to raise awareness of people of the concerns within their own environments. It identifies four key concepts: understanding how the Earth's natural systems work; accessing information about the state of the planet; acquiring tools and skills for productive and efficient environmental management; and committing to using natural resources sensitively and equitably. Understanding Our Environment also uses case studies of individual and collective action and contains exercises and questions for discussion.
