This topic explores the global challenges of creating a sustainable future. Using our Biodiversity and Earth Sciences galleries, students will discover how the Earth’s natural and human systems are interconnected. Case studies describing human-environment interactions include over-fishing on Canada’s East Coast, desertification in the Sahel region of Africa, climate change in the Arctic, open pit diamond mining in northern Canada, and clear-cutting in the tropics.
Explain how human-induced changes in natural systems can diminish their capacity for supporting human activity; analyse the impact of natural and human systems of some of the side-effects of urbanization and urban growth; evaluate the economic, social, and ecological impact of current practices used in harvesting or extracting a selected resource.
Do not combine with Climate Change (gr 10), Sustainable Ecosystems and Human Interactions (gr 9) or Population Dynamics (gr 12).
Maximum 35 people (including students, teachers, educational assistants and supervisors) at one time.
