This challenge considers how our behaviour impacts the environment, and how changes to that behaviour might change our impact, both positively and negatively.
How are the two connected? How do we shape our surroundings, and what is the evidence that our behaviour makes a difference? Is it the case that a significant impact can only be felt if we make big changes or can small changes add up to a make a big difference? When global events overtake national policy, what can we learn from the experience and what are our positive takeaways for the future?
In this section, we explore the impact of global events on the environment and consider ways in which positive change in the face of adversity can create a blueprint for future action. The ultimate challenge question is to examine and quantify your personal practices and behaviours, consider how these might have changed with growing awareness and create a personal sustainability action-plan for the future.
