RE kids: RE Meetup - April 11th after service (11:30) @ Zoom

We will be talking about how we’ve incorporated environmental challenges in our towns. Learn more about building sustainably by watching some of the resource videos.

Environmental Challenge:

The earth is experiencing many environmental problems which have resulted from human activity. Some of these problems include global warming, air pollution and loss of habitats. How we build & rebuild our cities can address these issues & hopefully, help to make it better.

Things to Keep in mind when building your town:

  • What is your climate like? Jungle, desert, moon-scape?
  • Does your town have any environmental catastrophes from the past and if so how does your utopia address that?
  • How does your town handle waste (human, animal, garbage, recycling)?
  • Where does your water come from?
  • What kinds of energy sources does your town use, how are they helping or hindering the environment?
  • How do people in your town use resources wisely?
  • Do people in your town have access to nature, what kinds?
  • What is your town doing to address climate change?
