Environmental Awareness Training | Climate change is weather trends over a long period of time.
Global trends show a warming of the climate and increases in extreme weather events. June 2019 in southern India low rainfall has left most of the 4 million population relying on water supplied via tankers due to depleted reservoirs. At the same time in Greenland temperatures were recorded at 22C above normal causing 2BN tonnes of ice to melt in a single days.
Mounting scientific evidence and a growing proportion of the public support the idea that climate change is spurred by human activity. Consequently on 1st May 2019 the UK government voted to approve a motion declaring that the earth’s climate is currently in a state of emergency. And UK government will endeavour to reduce climate emissions by 80% by 2050.

What is Sustainable Development?
Sustainability has become a basic principle of good economic, social and environmental development practices.
Sustainable development is defined in many ways but is usually defined as ‘meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs’.
In environmental terms, sustainable development means meeting the needs of the present by using natural resources at a rate at which they can be replenished naturally. On a micro level, we as individuals should also play our part in supporting sustainable practices.
