Did you know that the world’s human population is expected to grow by two billion people in the next 30 years?1 If this happens, and we continue as we do, we will no longer have the natural resources we need to sustain our everyday lives. A population that large would require about three planet Earths in order for us to have all the resources we need.
Sustainability is no longer just something we should look at, but rather something we must focus on. Our lives literally depend on it.
That’s why it’s so important for us to educate young learners about sustainable practices and get them invested in protecting the environment. By bringing books about nature into our homes and classrooms, we can get young learners excited about nature so that later they go into careers that help support global sustainability.
