Canadian and World Issues: A Geographic Analysis CGW4U

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.
