What have I learnt so far about sustainability
This term in sustainability what I have learnt so far is that our world is covered in waste that is just sitting in the landfill that cannot decompose. So, it is just sitting there and ruining the environment. Us Australians also buy things we won’t ever use which is still ruining our environment. I have also learnt about all the different aspects of sustainability and how other people are trying to improve it with their projects.
What do I still want to learn about
I still want to learn about how the environment can better from our mistakes and if we can’t how we can improve what we are doing to the earth. I also would like to learn about other ways we can help improve the sustainability of our school and things we can do at home. Our world is slowly being destroyed by the things we are doing to the earth and generations that come after us are going to have to fix this when they shouldn’t have to because it was our mistake to clean up.
How well have I been working in sustainability?
I feel like I have been working really productive as my project will be implemented in week 10 and I am about to put up posters to advertise my project. I have completed all my blog task and almost all of the pages in my portfolio document. Overall I think my progress has been really productive because of me being able to book a date for my project to happen which will be the Wednesday lunch of week 10
What are three goals I would like to achieve
Three goals that I would like to achieve is:
1) My clothes swap being a sucsess
I would really like it if my clothes swap was a succsess because I would then know that I made a difference some how and have affected other people.
2) Expanding my knowledge further on sustainability
I would like to know a lot of things about how we can benefit from keeping a sustainable environment but I do already know I just want to go into more detail about it.
3) Succsessing in the subject
I would love to do amazing in this subject but I have to be more detailed in my work. Doing this can benefit me in being able to finish all my work. Completing all my blog task would be another way on doing well as completing my portfolio in detail.
I've learnt this term that theres a lot more to sustain than you think I've learnt how much mix contamination can hurt the environment and that theres a lot of ways we can actually improve the environment even in little ways. I think I want to learn about how the environment got so bad in the first place and why didn't people recognise what they were doing till it was basically to late. I think I had been working pretty well in sustainability as ive almost completed part 1 of my assignment and on the way its part 2.
1 Completed assignment
2 making more people understand that what they can do to help if very little
3 improving the waste at JPC
What have I learnt so far?
I learnt a lot about soft plastic waste over the past eight weeks and, the amount that is produce and thrown away is shocking and horrifying, it only shows how badly we treat our world and the resources it provides to us. I have also found that there are several organisations that are fighting against plastic waste as well as groups that work to keep the ocean clean.
What do I still want to learn about?
I would like to know more about how we are treating the earth. if we are treating the ocean this badly, then how bad are we treating the earth, our home?
How well have I been working in sustainability?
I have been working quite efficiently. I have been getting my work done at a calm and steady place and have been implementing the teachers ideas into my project. I have also made to so that I can socialize with my peers and I have received feedback from them as well
What are three goals I would like to achieve before the term is over?
the goals that I would like to accomplish by the time the term is over is to, get all the blogs done, complete my assignment to the best of my ability, to find out as much as I can about sustainability and how it is being implemented into our world.
What have I learn so far about sustainability? In sustainabiloty I actually have learn a lot and gathered a lot of knowledge an information. The things I have learnt is that sustainability is very important and it is in every day life . It is the source of life and well being all over the world, to have a sustainable world, there must be a lot of things such as keeping the world balanced as possible with resources and other values not going to waste.
What do I still want to learn about? The things I still want to learn about in Sustainability with McNamara is how to keep the world sustainable from doing just the smallest things, which can make a big difference such as how to recycle properly, learning more about the modern world today about sustainablility and also learning more about the environment cause it is very crucial and important. Another thing I would like to learn more about is how to keep the environment in a sustainable and great place, so that we can live well, and so that the further generations can live well, healthy and and enjoy the world we have left behind for them.
How well have I been working in Sustainability? To be honest, I think I have been working well in Sustainability with Jack and Noah because we are helping each other and asking questions before asking the teacher, this is great because we can gain more knowledge, ideas and information from each other, making our work more efficient. But somtimes when one slacks off the other tells the individual to work and get the task done.
What are three goals I would like to achieve? The first goal I would like to achieve is getting all tasks done setted from the teacher. The second goal is to make the best effort i possibly put into my work to get the good grade I wanted, putting all the 100% effort and mind set to get the best abilities and knowledge out of it. Latsly the third goal I want to achieve is getting a lot of Knowledge and information about sustainability as possible from the class and the teacher, so when I leave school I have a bigger picture about sustainability, and in which try to make the world a sustainable place from doing the little things that can help reduce further problems in the present and the future.
Week 8 ILT
Review your work so far and answer these questions.
1) What have I learnt so far about sustainability?
This term I have learnt many different aspects of Sustainability, some of these aspects include learning about the different viewpoints that include self, community, national and global viewpoints on sustainability. I have also learnt about the different effects that humans have on the environment, some of these are effects on the native animals life and their habitats, and effects on the sustainability of the plant life in ecosystem.
2) What do I still want to learn about?
I would still like to learn more on the way humans act and why they act against the environment so much.
I would also want to learn about the things we are doing to help the environment and how it is effecting us here in Australia and in our community.
3) How well have I been working in sustainability?
I believe that I am not working as well as I can be in Sustainability, I believe that I can be working better and be make more of a start on my practical side of the assignment and need to finish off my portfolio. In class I need to focus more but in ILT I am up to date with what I need to complete.
4) What are 3 goals I would like to achieve before the due date?
Three goals that I would like to complete during this time before the due date are:
1. Finish Portfolio to a high standard.
2. Have the practical assignment side that catches eyes and is engaging to look at.
3. Complete each blog task to a proper level that is acceptable and is checked by peers.
I have learnt that sustainability is an extremely large business that is at a consistent growing trend. Being sustainable has been a very large trend in recent year. I have also learnt that many companies are trying to be more sustainable and reduce their carbon usage and emissions.
I want to learn how to be more sustainable in my everyday life and what aspects of everyday life are we most wasteful. I want to know what in life uses the most electricity and fossil fuels as well as once we’ve used all the fossil fuels what do we do for powering certain things.
I haven’t been working the most efficient due to Mrs McNamara being absent and not having a teacher approved topic to begin working on until week five.
My first goal before the end of the term is I would like to have my assignment handed in on time at a level I am satisfied with. My second goal is to ensure that all my blog post are submitted and handed in. My Final goal is to go till the end of semester. It is to have all work completed and to have done it easily and on time as well as to be more efficient in class.
1) So far in sustainability I have learnt that our world is far from being as sustainable as it could be. From this inquiry project I have learnt that clothing alone makes about 12.8 million tons of waste. Second to oil, the clothing industry is the largest polluter in the world.
2) I would still like to learn about many things in sustainability one thing being, how the fashion industry is making billions of dollars destroying our home. Why are there stronger regulations against this?
3) I believe I have been working at a productive level in sustainability. I have learnt a lot and are almost finished this assignment.
4) a) complete this assignment to a high standard
b) raise awareness on clothing waste and how it affects the wider world.
c) improve the overall sustainability at JPC
I have learnt a lot about sustainability and what it is and how to be sustainable
I have been working alright in this subject except I need to be more productive
Week 8: review your work so far and answer these questions.
1) what have I learnt so far about sustainability.
In sustainability this semester I have learnt that there are so many different ways to be sustainable, even by choosing not to use a plastic straw helps the world become more sustainable, the little things matter a lot if you want to achieve a sustainable environment. There are also so many things that effect sustainability in a bad way and there are so many unsustainable things around. Like before I started this I didn’t realise how bad fast fashion was, I didn’t know how much clothes people threw out every year or even month and how hard it is to get rid of clothes in the long run.
2) what do I still want to learn about?
I still want to learn if the earth will ever be fully sustainable and if being sustainable may be able to eventually stop pollution and global warming. Also why we should be sustainable, what are we doing that’s going to make the world a better place and like what impact every decision we make may have on our future and the world.
3) how well have I been working in sustainability?
I think I’ve been working quite effectively in sustainability because I have been on top of my work and got thinks finished on time, sometimes I get put behind but I always end up catching up and being fine. Me and Alex have finished our assignment and we are about to start selling our scrunchies in a few weeks.
4) what are 3 goals I would like to achieve before the end of the semester?
My goals are probably,
- Getting an answer to the questions from question 2
- Being more sustainable in my everyday life & making more people be sustainable
- Understanding the whole concept of sustainability and what it does to our earth and environment.
