- A project of LSF
Students explore sustainable transportation and ways in which it can benefit their community. They begin by discussing what sustainable transportation means and why it is important. They watch a short video, identify 3 ideas presented that they feel are worth adopting and share them with their classmates. After reviewing backgrounders providing current information on how vehicle types, public transportation & active travel can impact sustainability goals, small groups of students use the ‘planning guide’ provided by the resource to develop a plan for implementing one of these three approaches to sustainable transportation in their community.
After all the groups have shared their recommendations, students are encouraged to prepare a presentation to be delivered to the local municipal council. Other suggestions for extending the learning have been included.
This focus on alternative transportation will support those courses in grades 10 to 12 that examine the relationship among energy use, climate change and sustainability.
