PRODUCT SUMMARY


Sustainability refers to the capacity to provide for the needs of the world's current population without harming the ability of future generations to provide for themselves. Explore some of the challenges and successes of sustainability, starting in one of the world's most diverse habitats -- the rainforest. Then, consider some factors that can affect sustainability: carrying capacity, population density and ecological footprint. Weigh the impact of suburban sprawl, and visit Portland, Oregon, to see how this city has worked to combat sprawl through smart-growth policies. Observe sustainability in action at a school that has employed green building practices -- from their playing field made from recycled plastic and rubber tires to the photovoltaic panels on the roof. By studying and understanding the idea of sustainability and putting that concept into practice, we can begin working toward building a responsible and sustainable future. A teacher's guide is included and available online.
