MC~20 - Environmental Awareness - Introduction

Duration: ±3 hrs | Course Code: MC~20 | Cost From: R 250 ($20) per person

Environ Pic 1The environment is a hot topic across the world and much has been said about the need for action to protect our planet.

If current trends in climate change continue, temperatures could increase between 3 and 6 degrees Celsius by 2050. Such large temperature increases would lead to water shortages for billions of people, reduce agricultural yields, increase malnutrition related deaths by millions and lead to the extinction of a large part of animal species. Thus global warming, air and water pollution, overuse of fertilisers, the negative implication of use of plastics and polythene, conservation of energy and fuel resources, are all topics of current concern to not just a few, but to everyone.

Before you can begin promoting environmental awareness in your own community you must first make sure that you have a thorough understanding of environmental issues. When learning about the environment’s declining health it is easy to feel discouraged, but what keeps us fighting for a healthy world is the future of our children. They should not have to inherit our environmental problems and in order to keep their future bright, spreading awareness is imperative.

This course is a start, and is aimed to provide a brief insight into what each individual should be doing, both at home and at work to protect our planet and the environment.
