In the last few decades, consumerism has rocketed, and the planet has suffered. The damage we have done to our ecosystem and environment is devastating. Unless we drastically change our lifestyles, our world will continue to deteriorate until the damage is irreparable.
We believe that as school teachers, we have the opportunity and the responsibility of making our students aware of the beauty of our planet and the environment in which they live. With this project, we aim to guide our students towards a more sustainable lifestyle and to help them understand how to do that and why it matters.
Carefully planned activities in line with the Sustainable Lifestyle Challenge (Zielonka, 2021) will help students reflect upon the planet's future and necessary lifestyle changes. Tasks will include creative writing as well as making videos and podcasts. Finally, project partners will communicate and collaborate to decide upon an imaginary sustainable city.
