Sustainability Science
How might we keep the lights on, water flowing, and natural world vaguely intact? It starts with grabbing innovative ideas/examples to help kick down our limits and inspire a more sustainable world. We implement with rigorous science backed by hard data.

100 People: A World Portrait

100 People: A World Portrait | Sustainability Science | Scoop.it

This is the truly global project that asks the children of the world to introduce us to the people of the world.  We've seen videos and resources that ask the question, "if there were only 100 people in the world, what would it look like?"  This takes that idea of making demographic statistics more meaningful one step further by asking student in schools for around the world to nominate some "representative people" and share their stories.  The site houses videos, galleries from each continent and analyze themes that all societies must deal with.  This site that looks at the people and places on out planet to promote greater appreciation of cultural diversity and understanding is a great find.

This just makes me realize how the world would be if we only had 100 people rather than the billions we have now.

Why Science Teachers Are Struggling With Climate Change

Why Science Teachers Are Struggling With Climate Change | Sustainability Science | Scoop.it
The results of a new survey, published in the journal Science, suggest that many of America's middle and high school science teachers are misrepresenting climate change in their classrooms.
PIRatE Lab's insight:

We have tons of wonderful middle school and high school teachers.  But I have often been amazed at how few of these folks actually have what I would consider a formal science background.  It is no surprise many are using out of date info and not necessarily proving their students with the most recent theory and understanding given the lay of the land of teacher preparation.
