Global Sustainability Curriculum – Post-Program Activities
Activity 2: Out of the Box
How It Works
Here you will learn about creative solutions to modern day environmental issues and research some “out of the box” environmental organizations of their own.
How You Do It
- Watch the video 5 Incredible Eco-Friendly Innovations to Save the Earth.
- After learning about the 5 “out of the box” businesses, ask the students to fill out the Out of the Box Worksheet. This will help you discover companies and organizations that are already doing creative and innovative things to address an environmental problems you're personally concerned about.
Take Away Points
- There are countless “Out-of-the-Box” organizations and businesses out there.
- This is a great introduction into the idea of a Circular Economy (which will be further addressed in a later lesson). These companies show that businesses can both simultaneously help the environment and make or save money in the process.
