I decided to take a course that discusses education for sustainable development. As this is the beginning of the course, I thought that it would be important to share what I thought that this topic will be about, which I will offer below. But on a more personal note, I thought that it is important to learn about sustainable development and growth, especially since many leaders or groups were critical of President Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement. My presence in this course is also a commitment to the thoughts that I share previously, with a strong belief that the United States is still committed to our climate.
What Is Education For Sustainablity?
I think that education for sustainability should compromise more than the concept of the three R's. These are Recycle, Re-use, and Reduce. This is not to say that these are not important, because it is important to conserve. We only have one planet Earth, this is the home of human beings, and deserves to be protected for the survival of human species. Nature is necessary for the health and well - being of individuals, as environment regulates behavior. If our environment is clean, in - order, it will impact our behaviour, mental / mind, and well - being, as compared to that of an environment that is in chaos. These thoughts that are related to individuals, can be related to societies, and eventually to the macro, to that of a nation, and also to cross - border activity. Education plays an essential role to sustainable development and growth, as it creates an awareness and an appreciation for our environment. Nature deserves to be preserved, and conserved for the many species living on Earth, as well as our own health and well - being. Nature needs nurture, and nurture needs nature.
