Environmental Issues

Welcome to this lesson from the Matters of Life and Death unit (this unit fits with many exam boards, including the Religion and Life unit from AQA). In this lesson we will be exploring religious and non-religious responses to environmental issues such as deforestation and climate breakdown. Please make sure you have a pen and paper ready, and have cleared a quiet space for you to work in. If you have the TV or music on and can turn it off, please do. If you are not using your mobile phone for the lesson, it is best to put it to one side so you are not distracted by it. You will also need two different coloured pens: black or blue and another coloured pen, such as green or red. Click start when you are ready to think hard!
