Discuss

Which environmental issues are you most worried about? What do you do about them?

Which issues are the most pressing in your community? What is being done to solve them? By whom?

In your opinion, why are some people skeptical about environmental problems?

Get together with classmates who researched different initiatives and answer: what issues were in the spotlight? What decisions were reached at these events? Did they come into effect? Were they successful?
