carbon” technology such as solar power, wind power, building more buildings in an energy-efficient way and many more, with the modern technology that mankind have mastered, it isindeed possible to achieve so. Among all these “low carbon” technologies, as the output fromwind turbines has been found to deteriorate with age of installation, solar energy is the onlysource with vast potential compared with any possible human energy consumption level, withannual global insolation at 5600 ZJ (Moriarty & Honnery, 2018). In addition, the currentsituation will never become better unless all of us collaborate together, countries should worktogether by pledging to decrease their greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050, andcampaigners should call for cuts of 90% or even 100%. In fact, in the recent years, NewZealand, Costa Rica and Norway are actually racing to become the world’s first “carbonneutral” country. Another way to reduce global warming is to apply nuclear energy. The energy that wecan harvest from nuclear technology is actually bigger than we can ever imagine. Sustainableenergy supply relies on essentially inexhaustible resources of fissionable fuel, notablyuranium and thorium. Besides providing us a vast amount of energy, Nuclear energy actuallyhas zero CO2emissions. As the matter of fact, nuclear energy is indeed a benefit to the world.However, all these rare transition metal are actually hard to find globally, because of limitedindigenous fuel deposits, some nations/ countries (such as France, Japan, China and etc.)have proceeded to not only secure access to uranium fuel supplies on the open marketplace,but also embraced recycling as the major objective (Pioro & Duffey, 2019). CONCLUSIONGlobal Citizenship Education (GCED) aims to nurture the learners of all ages tobecome an active role, not only expecting but also involving themselves, both locally and

globally, in building more peaceful, tolerant, and inclusive and secure societies. The keylearning outcomes and objectives suggested in GCED re based on the 3 domains of learningmentioned above. All these domains are interlinked and widely applied in the learningprocess.Global warming and our dying ecosystems constitute one of the most challengingenvironmental issues in the 21stcentury. The endeavour to understand the complexinteractions between climate system and land surface has stimulated active researches interrestrial ecological modelling. Yet much still need to be done to reduce the severe of theglobal warming issue and effective actions need to be taken as soon as possible before it istoo late.SELF REFLECTION NOTEWe enjoy doing the assignment.We learn a lot during the process, especially about theGCED and the environmental issue we are facing now.
