    What did you learn about indigenous peoples' land management that you can apply in your own life?

    Indigenous people are protecting the last wild bits of land from the pipes. They are putting their land first instead of their lives. It is said that every 1 in 3 indigenous women are raped. They are ignored, abused and not treated as real people that is why we need to help we need to do what they are doing, to me that is the true way to fulfill your life. To help someone in need.

    We are making seed balls in class to sell at the earth day fair. We will sell them and use the money to buy trees to plant in the school. This way we will be reducing the carbon in our atmosphere because the trees we plant and the seed balls other people plant will bring in CO2 and give out O2.

  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Generation Learn More About Geothermal Energy
    Geothermal energy is reliable, abundant, and efficient. Project Drawdown states that public investment will play a crucial role in its expansion. In what ways (i.e. with money, time, advocacy) can you invest in geothermal energy?

    our populations are increasing and resources decreasing, this is why we need to invest in geothermal energy to get energy in a healthy way for out planet
