Talking about sustainable agriculture is important but it’s even more important to take meaningful steps to address this local and global challenge.
Lesson 1-6 includes optional Service Learning Activities. These short lessons include additional resources to help stimulate further discussion on the core topic and engage students in thinking about how they can make a difference. These lessons were written in collaboration with WE Schools. WE Schools reinforces, “no matter your age or location, we can all make a positive impact—whether that’s volunteering, fundraising or raising awareness around causes that matter”.
The Journey 2050 Wrap-Up is centered around Project-Based Learning. It is intended as the final outcome for Journey 2050 and includes a Student Workbook to help identify one concern, one realistic solution and the steps involved in making it happen. Every youth has the ability to make positive changes in their home, school, community, country and world.
