A key assessment component will involve students engaging first-hand in changing behaviour regarding a resource or environmental issue of direct relevance to them. Topics that may be covered include: air and water pollution, sustainability, plastic bags, household energy use, renewable and non-renewable resource management (fisheries, forests, and minerals), and the impact of trade.
