What Is The Earthsharing Challenge?

* An opportunity for an interactive workshop on land and natural resource use in your school
* Ultimately – a challenge to students to be selected to attend a free environmental camp, with a hands on role in the production of a video on sustainability

Outline Of The Challenge

Starting with Earthsharing Workshops in Your School

Two members of the Earthsharing team will come out to your school and take your students (Years 8 – 11) through a 45 minute interactive environmental learning experience. The workshop is based around Earthsharing Australia’s philosophy of land and natural resources as part of the Global Commons. More specifically we will explore current environmental issues, eco footprints and opportunities for further student involvement.

It explains how, “if done right, a descending economy-wide carbon cap is the single best tool to fight climate change.” But it warns that, “if done wrong, a cap won’t reduce emissions sufficiently and will transfer hundreds of billions of dollars from families to corporate polluters.”
