  • Reflection Question
    Health and Education Fund Family Planning
    When family planning focuses on healthcare provision and meeting the expressed needs of women, it results in empowerment, equality, and well-being, and the benefits to the planet are side effects. Why is family planning an important civil rights consideration?

    Family planning is an important civil rights consideration because family planning is a human right for women. Women should be able to choose how many children they want (or don't want) and when they want to have them (or not have them).

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Support Women-Owned Businesses
    Globally, women typically invest a higher proportion of their earnings in their families and communities than men. What have you done in the past to support women-owned businesses? How can you better support communities by supporting women?

    In the past I have supported women-owned businesses by buying products from small businesses run by women in my community. I shop locally for things like flowers, plants, chapstick, candles, jewelry, etc. I can better support communities by supporting women by continuing to purchase from women-owned businesses and purchasing from some new ones as well.

    Health and Education Learn about the Need for Family Planning
    What did you learn about the need for family planning? How do the needs of different people in different places compare to each other?

    I learned that it is extremely important to plan before having a family because you need to figure out what your household demand will be on climate sensitive resources such as food and water and how your family will affect the environment. The needs of different people in different places compare to each other because we all have the basic human needs such as food, water, shelter, etc.

    Electricity Watch a Video about Methane Digesters
    What does your vision of a sustainable community look like? What would need to be changed in order for such vision to become reality?

    I think that a sustainable community would have energy sources much like the one on the farms that would supply that ecosystem with energy using the resources that are already there. A sustainable community would utilize its own resources to supply itself with the necessary resources to properly function so as to avoid overusing resources from the environment. I think that more people would need to be educated on how to become self-sufficient because I think that part of the reason that it does not happen is that people do not know how to make it a reality.

    My drawdown challenge is going really well that this point. It's really opening my eyes to the things I can cut down on the help the environment.

    Electricity Learn More About Geothermal Energy
    Geothermal energy is reliable, abundant, and efficient. Project Drawdown states that public investment will play a crucial role in its expansion. In what ways (i.e. with money, time, advocacy) can you invest in geothermal energy?

    I can invest my time in geothermal energy by looking up its benefits as well as the pros and cons. By doing so, I can educate myself and others.

    Food, Agriculture, and Land Use Learn the Truth About Expiration Dates
    How does knowing the difference between use by, sell by, and best by dates empower you to make better decisions?

    Knowing these differences allows you to make better decisions because you'll waste less food which is better for the environment. Use by is the recommended date for using the product for the best quality and sell by tells the store how long the food can be displayed in the store for sale. However, most food is good for a little while after it's due date.

    Electricity Learn More about Wave and Tidal Energy
    What did you learn about wave and tidal energy? How do they compare to other energy sources?

    Nevaeh  Wilson's avatar

    Wave energy uses kinetic forces of waves to generate electricity, while tidal energy used gravitational pull of Earth. They compare to other energy sources by their use of force. Kinetic and physical are very common regarding energy.
