Environment is not just nature It is the sum total of water, air and land and the interrelationship amongst themselves and also with human beings and other living other organisms It is a multidisciplinary subject that includes: Geography History Economics Geology Physiology Physics Geography etc. The environment as a whole. Not just that around you- but that which is all around everyone. Global Environment- the effects chopping down a rainforest will have on the rest of the world, Physical environment – that which is immediately around us, Cultural environment – what your culture is as does to influence the world, internal environment – what WE feel and think, political environment- ideology, freedom and equality, and social environment- how people relate to one another. Destroy one of these, and we will have no future, as this is what we strive and live on. Question 3 Which values and skills will you try to instill in the learners? - P. 7 – 14 (Study guide): 3.1 Values a) Ethical rules We should always behave towards the environment in a way that satisfies our own needs. We should always behave towards the environment in a way that satisfies the needs of other people. In our treatment of the environment, we should always consider the needs of future generations.

Oct/ Nov 2011 Satisfaction of the needs of other species, populations and ecosystems should not interfere with the satisfaction of basic human needs. b) Ecological rules The use of exhaustible resources should be stopped entirely. We should not harvest more agricultural products and other products from an ecosystem than the ecosystem can produce. We should not tax ecosystems that process waste products naturally beyond their capacity. The production of waste products that are harmful to life, such as nuclear waste, should be prohibited. Industrial activities should not be permitted in places where they interfere with human needs. We should conserve as many kinds of organisms as possible, but not artificially. We should manage technological systems carefully and only replace them if we find another system that is more economical in terms of materials, energy and space. Ecosystems should be continuously monitored. Population growth should be limited. c) Social rules Economic policy should give guidelines for preserving the quality of the environment.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
