With our planet’s resources dwindling, ‘sustainable living’ is an increasingly debated topic. In essence, sustainability is about balancing our lifestyle with Earth’s resources to keep the environment healthy and minimise our impact. This book looks at both issues and solutions, exploring our consumption of natural resources such as food, land and water. It also looks at how we can achieve a sustainable lifestyle, considering innovations for a sustainable future such as vertical farms and electricity-generating pavements!
The information inside comes from a variety of sources, including newspapers, magazines, government reports and charity groups; providing different perspectives on challenging topics. At the end of the book is a selection of activities that will encourage interaction, literacy, critical thinking and independent research. Content is accessible and engaging, tailored primarily towards the 14 to 18 age group.
