Greenology In Action
Narrative Question: How do we take better care of our world and its resources?
To address this issue, our team decides to come up with a study on the various problems the earth is currently facing, from climate change to pollution, and lack of sustainable resources for the future. We provide detailed ‘cause, effect and measures’ studies to give an all rounded view of the issues.
However, we included another section that answers the question with a new and creative approach. Knowing that many countries these days are starting eco-friendly buildings, organizing green events and started green policies, we decide to answer the question by showing the current and future plans of the actions of these countries, doing comparisons and coming up with the best ways to solving a problem.
We added a section to guide an individual who also wants to play his part in fighting climate change. Every small action counts in helping the world fight climate change. The more we have the fear that it is irreversible, the more we would not want to care about it, and therefore bringing out the worst possible circumstances. Raising awareness would encourage more people to put in effort in helping planet earth.
An interactive section would be included too, comprising video interviews and quizzes to test one’s knowledge on our topic.
Resources required would be rather diverse. In order to have actual insights on what a country does, we have to live in the country itself. And that is what we successfully achieved, by having members working and getting information from Beijing, Tianjin, Indonesia and Singapore. Surveys, interviews and case studies could all be conducted at the various locations. Pictures were also easily obtained as we could directly use the pictures taken by ourselves.
This project targets anyone who is willing to find out more about fighting climate change and how these actual steps are taken in the real world. People organizing events for their school / community could gain inspiration from our sources, and probably add a green twist to their event organization. Due to the relevance of climate change, adding a green twist to anything would certainly gain approval and probably more support from the general public.
Finally, we aim to raise awareness of the climate change issue, and hopefully after going through our site, readers would actually understand the importance and severity of the situation and therefore want to play their part as well.
Our site also encompasses other facets of environmental conservation such as reaching a fine balance between technological advancement and consideration for the environment. We will also be including in our website, an evaluation of the policies various countries have adopted, as well as the recent Beijing Olympics, and perhaps a discussion with regards to the upcoming London Olympics in the year 2012.
Our primary objective would be to augment the overall awareness level of the global audience to perhaps accentuate the crucial need for environmental conservation.
